Andreea Robescu’s art is hard to pinpoint. Noisy, loud, and colorful it blends collage work with illustration, typography, and graphic design. The end result is a mixed media collage that often highlights the female body, challenging our traditional ideas about beauty and fashion.
Bold colors and abstract shapes play a big part of Robescu’s work, with her powerful imagery constructed by using anything from markers to acrylics, pencils and ink, and sometimes even her bare hands (making the whole process a very personal one).
According to Robescu, her creativity is rooted in her upbringing. Based in Barcelona, she grew up in a family of artists and took part in her first group exhibition at only 12 years old. “I started as a kid with drawing and painting, and even tried piano for a while,” she recalled in an interview with Adobe’s online magazine. “Then I went to university to study interior architecture, and with a lot of support and guidance from my partner, Andrei Robu, I ended up doing what I do today.”
According to Robescu her mixed media practice was shaped after coming to terms with the fact that architecture was not her vocation, and returning to her more artistic roots.
These days, Robescu’s energetic illustrations attract various global brands and publications, including Sephora and a commission from the Major League Baseball Assembly.
