Marinela Mantescu

A prodigious career, started many years ago, when she was graduating from the “Nicolae Grigorescu” Beaux Arts Institute (1979) in the class of master Corneliu Baba. The body of work of painter Marinela Mantescu-Isac has entered the national heritage as an indisputable value that will last over the ages. A simple listing of the personal or group exhibitions that Marinela Isac has inaugurated in the country and abroad would be enlightening in order to demonstrate the artist’s creative force. Awarded in salons national or international, the painter that has mastered to perfection the tender insinuation of colour can pride herself on having created paintings that are included in private collections on all continents. It is not a trivial matter to sell in Switzerland, Germany, France, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Anglia, Greece, but also in Egypt, USA, Japan, Syria, Australia or Venezuela.
