Emilia Tudoran, Manama Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Emilia Tudoran was born in Bucharest in 1975. After finishing high school in 1994 she entered the Faculty of Law at The Ecological University of Bucharest. In 1999 she finished her studies and started practicing professionally in the law cabinets of the city.
Always interested in arts,classical music and the opera, Emilia soon became disillusioned with the hectic legal lifestyle, and so when she was offered a chance for a studio career working as a sculptor for Artistic Mano D’oro, she jumped at the chance.
Artistic Mano D’Oro was an inspiration to Emilia in many ways; an environment filled with imagery, friends and laughter; creating unbelievable sets for the movie and advertising industries; she soon had a desire to explore with a unique style – inspired by Bogdan Olariu.
Emilia has developed an individualist approach to her use of acrylic as a medium; not revealing much of her technique suffice for what can be visualised in her finished paintings.
When Emi went to South Africa, her breath was taken away by the big sky of the country; the rugged landscapes of the African bush; and the lush variety of colour and sound. This forms the essence of her work today.
Emi's home for a while was on the West Coast of South Africa in the small village of Darling; and then she spent many years in the tiny kingdom of Bahrain in the Middle East where she kept a studio in the village of Janusan... Emi now finds herself on the East Coast of South Africa, in New Germany on the borders of the Valley of 1000 Hills; raising her son and doing what she does best - being creative!
