The Boardwalk, carnival rides, and beach scenes comprise this grouping of lively images that are sure to add color and joy to any room they occupy.
Born in Bucharest, Romania, Mina spent her childhood in theatre, amongst preparing actors, dusty props and costumes, and most summers by the Black sea, capturing the world with her plastic panoramic camera.
Fascinated by movies and cinematography, she frames the world in overexposed imagery that reflects the luminosity of her vision.
Since her move to NYC, she fell irreversibly in love with Coney Island, a subject that has been the center of her work for the past 3 years. She was a featured artist of the Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn and is a member of 50,000 Sea Monkeys Art Collective.
Mina lives in NYC and travels often, in search of serendipity driven by restless creativity.
