Artist Q&A: Florina Boldi

July 16, 2018

Florina Boldi is a Romanian artist who finds inspiration in various aspects of life, ranging from people, to nature, to film. She truly does what she loves, with all of her jobs relating to the art world. Florina decided to give back to the community by creating some work for SUSU. Check out our Q&A with Florina:

What was your journey to becoming an artist?

It was kind of there since I was little, always haunted by it.

Do you have any trademarks/recurring themes in your art?

Not at the moment. I am still exploring, but there is an inherent style that accompanies my art- it’s more realistic.

What mediums do you usually work in?

Mostly watercolor and pencils, marker, some digital renderings

Where can our customers find you or your work online?

On Etsy or , at www.behance.net.

What was your inspiration for the design that you did for SUSU?

The project for SUSU was the Let Your Style Speak For You design. I had to depict different women of different races and body types, dressed by the modern, current fashion trends and culture. It was a very interesting concept, yet challenging to find examples that would best evoke the current trends in each culture across the globe and summarize them in one model.

Other than your own, what is your favorite SUSU product?

I love all the artful graphic t-shirts.

PROUD- Personal achievement

ANGRY-Anger

EXCITED- A new adventure, a trip

SCARED- Loneliness, disease, pain

LUCKY- To be healthy, have a family, and to be loved

CONFLICTED- That I can’t make everyone happy or control certain things

EMPOWERED- Creative people, art

HOPEFUL- God

SAD- Losing people

STRONG- Mistakes, suffering
