Raluca Arnăutu is born on 9 of November 1977 in Bucharest, Romania. She became known to the public through large textile installation. It is equally interested in photo projects, graphic, textile and object design.
Raluca Arnăutu asserted: “Generally, my works represent a mixture of readymade and fabrics sculpture and at the same time have a hidden emotional imprint somewhere in childhood”. Objects and drawings signed by Raluca Arnăutu evoke emblems characters in old fairy tales and legends such as wolf, dragon, eagle, polar bear, fish or cat, through technical and mental collages, that outline a world of strong feelings where you can no longer distinguish between reality and dream.
Raluca Arnăutu creates a zoomorphic world, where animals from different world are mixed, resized, reconstituted or rethought. These are characters that roam the world up and down trying to find their place, to live in peace. Dealing with images is almost never possible into a simple description, passive, but express an attitude, a polemic regarding reality, or at least a question mark to the notion of “real”, creating an alternative parallel universe.
Graduated the National University of Arts, Bucharest, Graphic Department, the artist permanently extends her activity field by approaching new methods and techniques in the Romanian contemporary art. During these years, she participated in numerous personal and group exhibitions, her work being in important collection from Spain, France, Great Britain and Romania.
She started to be represented by Anaid Art Gallery since 2011.
