Emanuela is a London-based Romanian artist-educator whose fine art projects range from painting, printmaking, and installation art to collaborative, interdisciplinary art projects, participatory art, and artistic interventions within the educational space.
One of her recent projects was a collaborative art educational practice reuniting the fields of fine art and theatre created for the educational department of the National Gallery. It consisted of a series of 5 art workshops lead by Emanuela Marcu and theatre director Francesca Camozzi at Grimsdyke School in London that culminated with the creation of a collective, interactive art piece shown in the National Gallery in front of Tintoretto's painting that inspired it.
Emanuela graduated from the Painting Department of the University of Art in Bucharest and the Philology Department of the University of Bucharest and holds a Fine Art MA degree awarded by Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, the University of the Arts London.
Her artistic language has been influenced by abstract expressionism, by conceptual art and the Fluxus movement, and by the social sculpture of Joseph Beuys.
