Melinda lives and works in London. In 2009 she got her BA in Painting from the University of Art and Design of Cluj-Napoca, in Romania. Her work is an exploration of the ever-evolving human identity within our complex society. Through her paintings, she interweaves personal and collective memories, offering her own perspective on 21st-century existence. Central to her creative process is her fascination with colour and the fragmentation of forms, which infuses her work with dynamism and a sense of movement.
