Spiritual Bucharest and Crazy Bucharest

I went to visit several artist studios last weekend, as this month over 70 artists in Bucharest and Mogoșoaia are opening their premises to visitors on weekends on the occasion of the George Enescu Classical Music Festival.

One of the artists I visited was graphic artist Carmen Paraschivescu. Her studio is filled with intricate designs in mixed media, the ornamental tracery pinning down vivid, effusive inspiration. Here are two works she did for an art salon on Bucharest. They are titled Spiritual Bucharest and Crazy Bucharest.

Carmen Paraschivescu will open her studio next weekend too, so if you’d like to have a look at these pieces, she’ll be happy to receive you for a chat and a glass of wine at Str. Doamnei nr. 5 (the tower on the corner of Academiei and Doamnei streets) between 12 noon and 8 p.m.

  1. Mira Tudor, Thank you! I hope that the exhibition was well-attended and went well. The artworks spotlighted and those glimpsed in your very clear photographs make me want to know more about the artist and her art. Carmen Paraschivescu mixes colors most effectively and dramatically. The different sets of eyes serve as succinct communicators of who is crazy and who is spiritual.
