Angelika Toma (AT)

AT started painting at the age of six. At the age of twelve she attended the state painting school for four years in the socialist-communist system of the Ceausescu era in Romania. In 1985 she left her homeland.  Years later she experienced the freedom of art and the expression of the unconscious. Diving into “inner worlds” and “fleeing” from real existence makes for AT the creative so valuable. – For decades she has been to art fairs, galleries and exhibitions all over the world – the basis for a better, more diverse understanding of fine arts, especially contemporary art.
