Bran Castle, also known as Dracula Castle is situated in Transylvania and in the county of Braşov, The castle is a national monument and landmark in Romania. This painting represents a bohemian-expressionist view over the interior courtyard. The castle is located 3 km from my childhood hometown and is one of the most popular places visited by tourists in Romania. This painting is the first one from a future series which are being prepared for an upcoming exposition.
Sonia delves into design sculptures, acrylic/oil paintings, and papier mâché on glass. My initial contact with art happened around three decades ago back in Eastern Europe, where I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most interesting and talented colleagues. Gradually, while my life has taken various paths, art remained a constant and treasured companion. Being born in Transylvania and having spent a lengthy first part of my life on the steps of Dracula’s castle and its surroundings has fed me the passionate thirst to delve into the mystique world with multiple cultural nuances. Hence, this is reflected as a source of inspiration in my work. All these allowed for a stance towards crowded mixtures of primitive inspired colors, tree-dimensional geometrical shapes, and asymmetric patterns of shapes that act as a brain stimulant as being part of my art vision.
