Ioana Băltan (b. Dragomirești, Dâmbovița) lives and works în London. She attended The National University of Arts, Bucharest, where she obtained a BA in painting in 2015. The same year, Băltan obtained the Teaching Training Department's BA degree issued by the same institution. She continued her studies at The Brera Fine Arts Academy Milan with a scholarship and got an MA Degree in Strategies of Creation in Painting released by the National University of Arts Bucharest.
Băltan's paintings reveal her strong preoccupation with contemporary approaches to the female figure. Her large-scale compositions are thought of as a body of visual research on portraying feminine archetypes with a strong focus on how these subjects were depicted over time as angelic beauty icons, grotesque monsters, or recently as animated plastic simulacra. Ioana's urban goddesses are surrounded by fantastic landscapes decorated with cosmic elements, and wild fauna all of them surrounded by artificial lights.
