“Creativity is contagious, pass it on!”– Albert Einstein
I am a painter, designer and practising architect (PhD Architecture, Master of Urbanism). I went to school in Bucharest, New Haven and sunny Madrid.
My name is R_Contessa. No, it’s not, but I chose it as a wordplay based on Contessa (Lady), R (my initial) and the french verb “raconter” (to tell stories). Hence “Racontessa”, the story telling lady R 🙂
I am a minimalist, an old fashioned modernist trying to capture the essence of all things and emotions and reveal them in not too many words, brush strokes or shapes. I have an inquiring mind and a passionate heart. I am on a quest to learn, to help and to teach how to make this world better. I like developing and working on concepts that tell stories and inspire others to bring Beauty into their lives.
I think of myself as a Renaissance artist, constantly experimenting with different techniques and art mediums.
About My Friends:
I am hosting a temporary gallery for artists I like and respect. See their work under https://racontessa.com/artist-friends/
NGO-s I support through royalties.
I think there are many wonderful people out there, striving to make our planet a better place for everyone. They run on passion, but they also need money. I will donate 2.5% of all payments to them.
