I am Sorina Tomulețiu, visual artist and freelance translator currently based in Sibiu, Romania.

I have been working professionally in the field of visual arts since 2013. After getting a master's degree in British Cultural Studies from the University of Bucharest and working for international theatre and documentary festivals, I realized that all I really wanted to do was to draw. So I became legally registered as a Certified Natural Person and I started my freelance career as a visual artist.

I haven’t had any formal art training but when I was 5 years old my mother signed me up for drawing classes at the Children’s Club, a state-funded place where you could learn arts & crafts for free. There I became a member of PATA, a children’s group focused on Graphic Art and Painting, which, I later came to realize, represented my building block as an artist.

PATA group

I create artworks ranging from illustration to street art. By using a combination of multiple techniques and artistic mediums (markers, watercolors, ink, acrylics, oils, charcoal etc) I portray fantastical characters in surreal settings, creatures with a black sense of humour and allegorical landscapes, which make up a vibrantly coloured universe. The individual’s relationship to the space he/she inhabits (or the lack thereof), solitude, dislocation and the importance of freedom of speech are the main themes tackled in my work.

All the things that I’ve learned, I’ve learned to do myself. So far, I've had four solo exhibitions and a group exhibition in Sibiu, I illustrated covers for academic books, I created posters for various cultural events in Sibiu, I launched a series of bookstore products that can be found in all Humanitas bookstores in Romania, I held street art workshops for children, I have made political art and protest art, I have taken commissions and I have created street art installations. All these, as a freelance artist. And as a woman. In a country where culture is shoved in the backseat with little to no support from the state authorities. Follow my Projects page for updates on my current work.

For questions, commissions, collaboration proposals or suggestions, drop me an e-mail at info@sorinatomuletiu.ro.

I would love to hear from you!
