BA Graphic Communication Design, Central Saint Martins 2019

Simina's work varies in technique but is consistent in themes regarding the questioning and criticism of human nature, from a fine art medium and approach through her Domestic Violence etching postcards, as well as through the sci-fi/adventure sequential narrative in Interritus.

First and foremost her aim is to be a story teller, this is directed from her fascination for cultural diversity and the socio-political issues that rise from this. Particulalrly influential is her move to cosmopolitan London from Romania, a very racially uniform country.

Working primarily in ink, Simina finds it fascinating how much versatility in visual language can be achieved through what is a powerful, simple, easily available medium and such a broad range of markmaking can facilitate extraordinary self-expression.

"I would like, first and foremost, to make people feel, and second, to make people think, whether my work raises inquiry, self-reflection or remembrance. I hope they will see the larger issues I reflect upon through my work, but also find escapism through the aesthetic pleasure I hope my work provides."
