Andrea Tivadar

Andrea Tivadar was born in 1991 in Botiz, Satu-Mare, she lives and works in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

She earned her BA and MA in Painting from the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, where she is currently preparing her PhD. In 2014 she won a scholarship at Ecole Supérieure d’Art de Bretagne, Rennes, France, followed by another scholarship at Associazione Socio-Culturale ProCultura – RoArte, Rome, in 2016, and at Deák Erika Gallery, Budapest, in 2017. In 2018 she was awarded the Teodor Moraru Scholarship for Painting. She participated in a number of group shows, among which The Existential Space of Virtuality, Deák Erika Gallery, Budapest,Tra segno e colore, Accademia di Romania in Roma, Do It Yourself, Gara Mică Cultural Space, Cluj-Napoca, in 2016; The New Inmate, Centrul de Interes, Cluj-Napoca, Breaking Rules, Museum of Art, Cluj-Napoca, in 2017; Meanwhile in Painting, Budapest Galéria, and The Image in Painting. About Coming Out in Reality, Quadro Gallery, Cluj-Napoca, in 2018. In 2019 Estopia Art Gallery hosted her solo show, Abstract Fluidity.

While replacing figurative approach with a form of “synthetized creation” and abstraction of reality, the young Romanian artist is convinced that “art is the sincerest expression of real life”. But what we see in her works is not at all “reality” in the conventional sense: on the contrary, in a fascinating play of forms and volumes, Andrea Tivadar seems to recover on her canvases an essentialized reinterpretation of an imagined or (re)invented reality of her own.
