    About the artist

    Laura Livia Grigore is a poet, self taught painter and psychology enthusiast, with a background in space engineering. Her artwork is orientated on emotions, reflecting her opinion that most of the answers we need can be found inside ourselves, although the hardest thing to do is to be sincere with oneself. She is constantly looking for purity and the meaning of everything we live. Her quest for freedom is reflected in her desire to experiment in her artwork. She also believes that every person can find peace and satisfaction by practising an art, whether painting, writing, dancing, acting or anything else, and one can always find the time for this, despite the tiring and repetitive 9 to 5 life. Her Oil and digital and love project is a venture into digital art in which imagination mixes with reality. She is currently working on a novel.

    Oil and digital and love is a series o photocollages, in which Laura Livia Grigore recreates the way her imagination works. By superimposing photographs of her paintings and photographs she takes in her daily life, the artist reconstructs the imaginative, blurry world of a painter. The Oil and digital and love project is an encounter with the inner, intimate mechanisms of the process of creation. For each of her visual work, she writes a poem in order to fully capture the current mood. Furthermore, she reads the poems herself, attracting the listener into a complete acoustic and visual experience. Oil and digital love is an unique blend of fast surrealism, consciousness art, written and spoken poetry and last but not least, the full, colourful palette of emotions. The project supports the artist's idea that as technology advances, the creativity of mankind will increase because genuine art is not measured in number of pixels or words and people just need the courage to explore their imagination and to listen to their unique inner voice.
