Livia Mosanu is currently working on a series of large-scale oil paintings in which she explores the connection between us and our surrounding bodies of water, in particular the Atlantic Ocean. Her work is a result of capturing unusual and meaningful rhythms found in tumultuous water as well as her aesthetic interpretation of the subject. These designs or compositions are meant to engage the viewers on a deeper level and allude to the mystery of the water and to the mystery of life itself. An MFA graduate from the New York Academy of Art her works are on exhibit in NYC, NJ, MA and in many private collections worldwide. She is a finalist in the 8th International Painting Annual published by Manifest Gallery and a recipient of grant awards from the New York Academy of Art and the Art Students League. A native of Bucharest, Romania, she currently resides with her husband and daughter near Boston, MA.
