Art In Conversation is about sharing, is about inspiring a relationship with art through direct conversation with artists.

Our mission has two purposes: 


  • To promote Romanian artists and designers and to create a direct connection between artists and audiences across the world.

  • To introduce and connect artists around the world with Romania and its cultural realm. 


We believe that the Romanian cultural space has a universality of expression which proves to be a binding factor between people and cultures around the world.

Our vision is to encourage and inspire a prevailing relationship with art through direct conversation with artists.

We provide a platform for dialogue between Romanian artists and global audiences and we seek to engage partnerships and collaborations internationally.

We believe it’s important to support our artists in whatever way we can, therefore, we have launched the Art in Conversation 3D Galleries, our version of the “ultimate empathy machine”.


Our virtual tours allow you to step inside the Galleries and experience art in a digital realm from the comfort of your home.

The graphic artist and painter MARIA BALEA creates imagery structured on suggestive shapes, attentively worked out of chosen elements, motives, and associations, which are codified, metaphorical. In her plastic expression the artist, though dedicating her last years especially to the painting, to the paintbrush and the acrylic, did not give up completely her basic training, frequently turning to the means of graphic art. In the paintings created in the mixed technique the graphic, the vigorous and expressive drawing continues to hold a prevailing, definite place. The idea of structure is omnipresent in Maria Balea’s works, which distinguish themselves by a perfect unit of composition, concentrated and dense. 


From the comfort of your own home, travel the world discovering the works of our international artists and enjoying their immense talent on a daily basis. We believe that art is not reserved for experienced connoisseurs and collectors but open to all.  

Here you will find an eclectic and rigorous selection of photographs, paintings, and sculptures, by emerging and established Romanian artists from all over the world.
