Raluca Popa

*1979 in Faragas, Romania, lives and works in Bucharest
Residency period : January to June 2017
Artist, illustrator

She studied at Byam Shaw School of Art / Central Saint Martins (London) and The University of Art and Design (Cluj). 

Since 2009 she has been involved also in animation films, as a background artist. Thus, at the moment she positions herself in-between two poles, the foreground and the background, in other words in-between the affirming nature of an artwork versus the subordinate nature of a décor. During her stay at EoFA she will produce new works that talk about this ambiguous situation.

Her works have been presented in public and private institutions: Lateral ArtSpace / Fabrica de Pensule, Cluj; Guangdong Times Museum; Shed im Eisenwerk, Frauenfeld; Printmaking Gallery / The University of the Arts, Philadelphia; Rumänska Kulturinstitutet, Stockholm; Ivan Gallery, Bucharest; MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna; Tranzit.ro Bucharest; Galeria Plan B, Cluj; MNAC – National Museum of Contemporary Art Bucharest; Salonul de Proiecte, Bucharest; Leopold Museum, Vienna; Contemporary Art Gallery of the Brukenthal National Museum, Sibiu.
