Irina Neacșu is a designer and a botanical artist, member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and founder of the Romanian Society of Botaical Artists. Her projects cover a wide range of creative fields, from painting and graphics to art teaching, applied arts and interior design.
Irina Neacșu started as an artist in the field of interior design, where her name became an international brand, with exhibitions at various fairs and events throughout Europe. The main collections focus on bespoke upholstery and chairs, crafted with textile collage techniques and digital printing. Irina has worked on both old and new furniture, restoring and customizing items according to the specific needs of her customers. Her interior design collections include home accessories and furniture, in unique series or limited series.
Later on, in the field of painting and graphics, Irina refocused from the architectural study that laid the foundations of her professional training, to botanical art, where she cultivated her fascination for plants. The naturalistic perspective and the intense, participatory observation led Irina's activity to various approaches such as the classic botanical illustration, ink drawing, or abstract and surrealistic oil painting. The botanical works signed by Irina Neacșu highlight the ephemeral beauty of flowers and their mortality, as an integrated and integrating vision of life. Irina also creates pieces of art on demand, adapting her work to the client's perspective.
In the year 2016 Irina moved from the capital city to Brașov, where she feels closer to nature. Here, she opened the Irina Neacșu Studio then founded an art school, Cembra School of Botanical Art and Design, where she teaches courses and workshops in painting, drawing, textile art or design and encourages creative knowledge inspired by nature and heritage.
Through these projects, Irina hopes to bring together a local community of artists who share the same values based on sustainability and interactive development.
