Raluca Arnăutu was born in 1977 in Bucharest, Romania. She graduates the University of Art from Bucharest, Romania. She became known to the public through large textile installation. In 2012 she represents Romania at the 3rdInternational Kids’ Carnival “Tales and Thoughts” in Venice, Italy with the project “Beasts and Superbeasts”.

Raluca Arnăutu said: “Generally, my works represent a mixture of readymade and fabrics sculpture and at the same time have a hidden emotional imprint somewhere in childhood”. Objects and drawings signed by artist evoke emblems characters from the ancient fairy tales and legends such as wolf, dragon, eagle, polar bear, fish or cat, through technical and mental collages, that outline a world of strong feelings where you can no longer distinguish between reality and dream.

Works in private collections from Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Great Britain, Romania, etc.

Raluca Arnăutu is represented by Anaid Art Gallery since 2011.
