Irina Alimanestianu (American, b. 1957, Nyack, NY) is an artist and writer who was raised in New York, Switzerland, and France. She holds a BFA from New York University, an MBA from Columbia University, and an MFA from Claremont Graduate University. Her work has been featured in shows such as 3-D Painting, at the Peggy Phelps Gallery, in Claremont, CA curated by David Pagel (2009), Continental Drift at CMay Gallery, Los Angeles, CA curated by Shana Nys Dambrot (2015), and Fix-It-Up Too SASSAS at Blum and Poe Gallery in Los Angeles (2012). She currently works between NYC and Venice, CA. 

rina Alimanestianu's painting process is inspired by human connection.   Through our cultural heritage and appropriating iconography of world religions and pop culture she seeks to further understand our being in our non-verbal collective history, exploring it through animism and biomorphic shapes. These connections are distilled into the raw energy of our beings, manifested through the language of abstraction.
