ABOUT

Alexandra Constantinescu, a Cluj-Napoca-based artist, is working at the crossroads of visual art and design, with a focus on the making process and on the exploration, within the medium of ceramics, of those notes that are subdued. Her themes revolve around the perception of color and the use of text, in a manner that supplies non-visual meaning. Alexandra graduated in 2004 from The University of Art and Design  Cluj-Napoca- Sculpture Department and received a Master’s Degree in Sculpture in 2015. The same year, during an international MA scholarship, she attended, one semester, the course Ceramics: Art and Function from The Fine Arts Faculty of the University of the Basque Country.

Alexandra Constantinescu is a Romanian visual artist born in 1981, living and working in Cluj- Napoca.
