Visual artist and illustrator
Ana Popescu is a visual artist and illustrator working mainly with drawing and colours on paper. Born in Romania, Popescu grew up in France and is now based in Vienna. She studied printmaking and drawing under Professor Jan Svenungsson at the University of Applied Arts, receiving her Masters of Fine Arts Vienna in 2013. Her work mainly deals with the theme of space and the relation between the inside and outside. The use of exaggerated colors, distorted perspectives, and the emptiness of living spaces and their surroundings make the work distance itself from a known reality to depict a new one. Her work is greatly inspired by architecture and its relation to light. Recently she has exhibited her work in New York, Tokyo, Shanghai, Ljubljana, and Bergen, and at the Griffin Gallery in London and Haus Wittgenstein in Vienna. Her clients include Rimowa, Tylko, Zeit Magazin, Canal+, Architectural Digest and Frieze NY.
