A London-based artist, discovered painting in her mid-30’s and, without any formal training, managed to find her own inimitable style by creating unique figurative art.


It all started a couple of years ago, when after a struggle with depression, she picked up the pencil and painting brush at the recommendation of her doctor and started sketching family and friends.


Oana is predominately a figurative and portrait artist who incorporates strong graphic elements in her work. Her expressive mixed media works combine acrylics, ink, paint markers and paper all applied in an equally diverse manner using brushes, fingers, paint rollers and paper to create expressive and striking imagery.


Her unique style can be recognised from the combination of natural flowing lines with harsh diagonals, clean crisp areas of colour with layered messy paint and cut out paper. The finished works are a mix of modern and almost futuristic look, whilst still managing to retain a raw traditional aesthetic. She is influenced and inspired by diverse sources including; Fashion, Pop Art, Street Art , Cubism, Art Nouveau, Modernism and Constructivism, all pulled together to create stylised works.


Oana would love to hear from you if you have any questions or would just like to chat to her about her work. Get in touch via email any time: oana.d.gavrila@gmail.com
