"I believe destiny always finds you. It may even give you a chance or two.
What you can hope to be when that happens, is to be ready. Be ready to customize, improve and follow through. Because if you don't find yourself in your destiny,
you will be its victim."
BIO
Calina Hiriza is a contemporary artist, known for her bold abstract style
and experimental techniques on wood.
 Calina is an American-Romanian whose international exposure is reflected in
 her powerful artistic expression. Her work as Creative Director has allowed her to merge,
in both art and life, the practical with the aesthetic. In 2020 she moved to Millburn, New Jersey
where her artistic career continues.
Calina is traditionally-trained in the fine arts from a young age. She holds a BFA and AA from
the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

ART STATEMENT
My work begins with a dialogue between self and matter, and leads to the abstract, where the corpus
is deciphered through the chromatic intensity and invites the contemplation of new possibilities.
The pieces tell intricate stories in a clandestine language for which there is no physical referent.
Currently working on the abstract series "Secret Life of Color".
