Aitch _ Berlin, Germany

Aitch is an artist and illustrator from Romania, currently living in Berlin, she graduated the University of Art and Design in Timisoara, Romania, exhibited in many galleries from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Romania, Denmark, US, etc.

She started drawing weird chubby fantastic creatures while she was in University, as some sort of subversive reaction to the academical way of treating the human body and anatomy. She developed these characters more and more until she got to gather some of them in a book about "Domestic Monsters", which remained in the prototype state. The book contains illustrations and short biographies of monsters who are responsible for all the daily troubles like tangled hair, fear of driving in cars, waking up in the middle of the night to eat, getting a shitty present for Xmas, falling asleep in class, etc.

Some of her artworks contain even bizarre religious details mixed in with fantastical creatures in nightmarish scenes - she identifies the early, boring, smelling of wax and frankincense, mornings spent in the church in her grandmother's village, as influences for the series "Saints and Sinners".
She recently started to apply all her experience with character design, graphics, illustration, in hand made pillows, plushies, brooches, pendants, has been selling them in art fairs and flee markets and shops in Berlin, Barcelona, Madrid, Bucharest, Hannover,etc, and has been also featured in many design and crafts magazines."
