About the work
About the artist
The artist's name is Mimi Revencu. He was born in Romania where he still lives today. A graduate of Al.I.Cuza University in Iasi, she first chose to become an economist and then a painter.
Mimi’s art is instinctive. Her paintings tell stories inspired by every day experiences and moments, expressed through the language of her inner world. Their symbolism comes from a place within her and they are influenced by Eastern European mysteries, fairy tales and patterns. In telling her stories, she’s always searching for sincerity and for that raw emotion and joy we are all born with but tend to lose as we become adults.
A mirabilis artist, Mimi’s art is positive and radiates only good energy. And if you look at each of the stories she tells on canvas, you’ll always find a secret, and perhaps that secret is the key to rediscovering something genuine and true about yourself.
Mimi Revencu’s first love for art started through her father’s drawings. She painted and made drawings herself throughout her youth, but it wasn’t until much later that she decided to devote her life entirely to art.
She was guided in her formative years by the Romanian Master Petru Petrescu who recognized her natural talent and unique style. She developed her technique and distinctive elements with the confidence of someone who feels she has a calling, not just a plan. She uses her instincts and experiences to develop sophisticated narratives that express authentic joy and at a closer look, hide symbols and secrets.
