I am Alexandra Motiu and I make art under the pseudonym Moatzart. I am a printmaker and illustrator.
My work has pop art and surrealist art humour with an old masters' feel. My background is painting and printmaking. I am influenced by Dadaism and Surrealism, and my work is revelatory of internal struggles through disturbing imagery, as the grotesque and carnivalesque is endlessly fascinating.
I aim to make hauntingly beautiful work that will stay with the viewer for a long time. I love stories, myth and folklore, and a lot of my work is very illustrative.
I make limited edition linocut prints, as well as drypoint etchings, and monotypes using a printing press. I am currently starting to work with wood engravings as well.
