About me

Alina Eliza Smocov, Salonta, 1979, Romania. Lives and works in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. Represented by Global Contemporary Graphic Art Gallery, Granada, Spain

Passion

There are people who asked me…Why art? And my answer is: because its my passion that makes my soul happy. Its something beautiful that gets inside me and does not leave me.

Imagination

As a curator I play with my imagination and during my lectures I take the audience with me in my imagination.
