My name is Georgiana Tarlungeanu, and I'm an architect passionate about sketching on the spot, from reality - buildings, landscapes, and symbolic elements of our world. Since I started this drawing adventure seven years ago, I have continuously made around 500 sketches during trips, capturing and representing amazing places along the way all around Europe.
At some point 2 years ago, I got bored with keeping the real aspect of the place with its specific measurements and proportions. An idea popped into my head to start distorting and bending the reality. I wanted to challenge the viewer’s mind with various types of perspectives while keeping a lot of realistic details. It makes you reanalyze what you see from a different angle and question the reality you live in.
You can check out my works on the pages below, some of them more conventional than the ones that you're about to see. And if you like them, you can buy prints on my Etsy page. Enjoy the gallery!
