I am a wanderlust self-taught artist – creative director + writer – in love with art, piano jazz, music, nature connections, photography, poetry, the Universe. I’ve started photography and painting modern abstract art in March 2020 during the first COVID-19 pandemic period, as a hobby first, soon later as a sort of mindfulness meditation.
When I was 17 years old, unfortunately, I lost my father who was a fanatic traveler and since then traveling became the biggest passion of of my life. After my Master Degree in Marketing I moved to Italy, where I am actually based, and during my experience as a human resources manager, freelance writer + creative director, I was so lucky to travel worldwide thanks to my work. But during the pandemic situation everything changed. As I couldn’t travel anymore, I continued to write articles during the first lockdown, at the same time I started to explore various online courses focused on abstract art and photography with MoMA New York. Since then, photography and abstract art became an obsession for me, as I found my own way to start traveling again.
I enjoy creating abstract paintings and modern landscapes with a touch of mystery that bring our minds inside a parallel dimension. Each painting has a hidden secret inside and is related to my curiosity to explore the nature and the Universe. I am very fascinated and inspired by our world’s beauty, different unknown cultures, indigenous people and by the mysteries of the Universe as seen as through NASA. My art would not be possible without music, so I always create inspired by the sounds of Vangelis, Ennio Morricone, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Charles Mingus and more.
My paintings are all one of a kind, 100% original hand painted and created with great care, personally signed on the front. I use high quality acrylic and oil paints, mediums on professional stretched canvas, ready to hang. The layers of oil or acrylic paint are applied using painting brushes and pallet knifes. Each painting is coated with acrylic gesso and finished with a clear matte or glossy varnish to protect colors for longer periods of time and to ensure durability and protection against changes in room temperature, UV light, moisture and dust.
I take commission works based on my previous work. If you see a painting you like that was already sold, I will create a similar one for you. To view and enjoy my paintings you can also visit my online shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/mirawanderlustart
At the same time I am the Creative director of 33 Magazine and founder of KREEP. Productions. My works were published on the below magazines: I-D Italy, Fucking Young, RedMilk, Modic, Collezioni Sport & Street, Vogue Talents, ELLE Italia, L’Officiel Malaysia, Schön Magazine + more.
