London based Melinda Matyas’ works are psychologically charged expressions of the hidden, existential approach towards the self and its contemplation from an exterior perspective.

Melinda’s interest in psychology and her research for understanding the source that adds meaning to ones life is one of the major influences in her work. Her main focus is the human condition, the internal world one experiences amidst the expectations of society. 

In her creative process colour and texture are equally important, as well as the deconstruction of forms which allows her to find an equilibrium between figuration and abstraction. Though she considers herself a figurative painter, the dynamism she creates through breaking up the forms often make her work look abstract from a close view.

Originally from Romania, Melinda graduated with a BA in Fine Art Painting from the University of Art & Design, Cluj-Napoca
