Ioana Jitaru

The Wall

Material: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 50 x 120 cm

« The Wall” was inspired, and it is a tribute to Nicolas de Staël’s « Le mur » oil on canvas. “The Wall” is entirely painted by applying layer over layer of acrylic paint using knifes.
With deep reverence for art, spirituality and outdoors, through her paintings and photography, Ioana Jitaru captures the emotional realm of the human condition and the ethereal atmosphere of nature. Mostly self-taught, Ioana Jitaru's work was included in a couple of private collections and was shown on several international shows. She is the winner of the "People" category award of the 12th edition of "Julia Margaret Cameron photography award" for professional section and among the finalists of several other painting and photography awards.
