Andrea Bernath is an artist from Sibiu in Romania. Andrea’s art is inspired by her own life, but also by fantasy, phantasmagory, mythology, and grotesque. Her paintings and drawings bravely walk through the strange world of both divine and devilish creatures often captured in a surprising symbiosis. She sent us three cards, prints of the original ball pen drawings, inspired by classic novels “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, “Thumbelina” by H.C.Andersen and “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll.
