|Author and Artist, Ada Cartianu was born in Bucharest, Romania in 1978. She is a
descendant of Enache Cartianu, The patriarch of a prestigious Romanian family with a very
cultured, but tumultuous history.
She was privileged enough to grow up surrounded by academic and artistic influences. As
a child, her first memorable contact with history and art was the Cula Cartianu.
These days the Cula is converted into a Museum. The first architectural construction
began in 1715 and the first version of the house after other architectural changes was
finished in 1760. This is the new architectural structure from 1820.
It is one of the most valuable monuments to 17th century Romanian architecture and
renown for its unique brick and wooden beam construction. Converted into a museum in
2004, the exceptional ethnographic collection preserved by her family, helped her
understand the importance of her “Romanian roots" and its contribution to art.

At the age of 13 Ada Cartianu enrolled in art classes at the Popular Art School "1" Sect2. from Bucharest to study to draw
and paint under the supervision and education of Prof. Kessler. The artists like Romanian painter Corneliu Baba, Octavian Florescu,
Russian painter Wassily Kadinsky, Spanish painter's Salvador Dali and Picasso, French painter's Toulouse Lautrec, Marc Chagall,
Constantine Andreou, Mexican painter Frida Khalo, Austrian painter Gustav Klimt and Hollandaise painter Vincent Van Gogh,
American painter Paul Jackson Pollock have the most important influence in her artistic life because she says:
"Freedom for expression, freedom to see something more around
you and make it real for stranger eyes who can't see your world.
Creation is much more important for me when I can turn a dream
into a reality and share another side of beauty which doesn't come from
what everybody sees. For you a tree is a tree, for me a tree is a world of mystery"
But even though she enjoys using colors and paint her first love will always remain the books and the words. She
declared: "I can consider myself an artist as I have some talent from Life (you think that being God), but I feel myself
as being a writer. I was born to write and paint and growing it's just a matter of time, practice and
ambition...like Dali said once "Intelligence without ambition is like a bird without wings"...I consider myself ambitious
and Life/God gave me allot I have to thank for. I have imagination...maybe this makes me an artist but I prefer to say I only
have another kind of eyes for life."
"Ada Cartianu begin to paint again in the past few months of 2011 focusing on developing a personal career in the arts after she
discovered the impact of her new paintings around the artistic circle of Miami, Sarasota, Chicago and New York.
Her paintings created a wave of numerous exhibits and great sales to some of the most influential and famous sport players and
actors, offering in a very short time a large publicity and development for Ada's imagination and success.
Her old saying " I only have another kind of eyes for life" it was a proof that her vision and imagination can change the image of the
world in such passionate, colorful, deep expression and meaning." ( Marcus. S. Powell)

|From her childhood Ada Cartianu balanced her artistic passion between words and
colors. Her love for colors and painting developed under the influence of her great
grandfather, Romanian painter C.V. Ionescu. He had the chance in his lifetime to meet
and offer hospitality to the well known Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi in the
period when he did come from Paris to Romania-Tirgu Jiu to do his monuments of art in
honor of the Romanian heroes of the first world war("Table of silence", "The Gate of
the kiss","The obelisk of infinite"). His memories regarding this special event of his life,
reflected in sketches and comments to each, helped Ada to discover the beauty of
simplicity and sophistication; the freedom of imagination in art.
