Maria Dermengiu is a Romanian artist.
''Once upon a time… there I was, a little girl who dreamt of a mysterious, round world, wrapping her mind around intricate thoughts, ideas and vivid imagination.
My roots go way back into the eerie land of Transylvania, a frontier land where stories and myths come together to spark the imagination of those who are set on the path of becoming artists of all kinds. Ever since I was a little girl, I was exploring the artfulness of everyday life, leading me years later, into pursuing the creative path and becoming a visual artist. I had the opportunity, from an early age to travel often around the world, which contributed greatly to my visual vocabulary and development of my visual culture. All I’ve experienced during living abroad, flavors, colors, shapes and sounds have been envisioned and embodied into my work.
I followed the footsteps of the majority of my family by entering the Law School. After graduation, I felt something was missing and I decided that it was best to listen to my inner voice , and start living the dream I had always had within – to paint.''
