About Adina Banea : Charismatic, sensible and creative, you will always find Adina, painting the sky trough love, because she does believe in love, a feeling which she extrovert by not counting her footprints. "Convicted to life," she thinks this is the most beautiful way to draw her portrait and to define her art. She embraces and adapts every challenge life gives her. She converts it into real feelings, starting from melancholy to euphoria, from sexuality to innocence, and she'd like to describe it by "pure art." Even if Adina always felt the need to express her creativity in writing and drawing, the fear of falling short and disappointing herself and the others limited her, so she put her visions in a box, and she started working as a lawyer in a bank. She continued the pattern, and her second job was into the Interior Ministry at the International Relationships Department. Her strong beliefs in femininity and feminism but also her family values determined her to create a new format of TV Show, and present it, on a national Television. The show was named Bebe.ro and was about the unique quality of a woman- being a mother. This way, Adina realized she was being heard, so it made her build her online community, through her blog, which became one of the most read in Romania, being in Top Ten Influencers Relationships Category, for four years already. As she was trying to define herself, she always put together the three words she likes the most: energetic, passion, and love. With these attributes, it was born Reprobable Clothing Brand, maybe her most playful project. About clothes and how important is what we wear, Adina Banea uses to say that: "If you want people to listen to you, there's an important lesson here: Dress the message. Always. The clothes we wear and the way we groom ourselves will change the way other people hear what you say. It will subconsciously tell them if you're like them or if you're different. It will determine whether they listen or ignore. Trust or distrust. This is my belief."
STATEMENT OF ART:
For me, art is not an object; generally speaking, art means for me, first of all, freedom. Choice. Courage. Love. Concept. On the other hand, design means minding detail. The detail is everything crucial for our niche.
The detail of a well-fabricated piece of clothing, the aspect of the sewing and its quality, the features that define the designer will determine the trend of the season — the detail of the perfect size and the quality of the lining. When you admire a design or when you are wearing a designer dress, when you are happy the whole day because of that, you feel and live and touch that little detail. From the other point of view, I am Pisces with Gemini, four in one, according to astrology.
The Sangvinic dresses me in superficial selfies, the Choleric reproves my hidden ambition for a while around the corner, the Melancholic thinks and protects me by imposing rules of society that I love to violate, but in particular. The Phlegmatic part of myself helps me to gather beautiful people around.
I live loving. Unloving, I would breathe through life. I love to love, and I love to sit in verse with happy rhyme. If I didn't dance my happiness loving, I'd go hunched wandering for wasted time. I can't spend my time, and I don't want to sell it to a few happy moments. I do not confuse the joy of the moment that only mimics happiness, with the pleasure itself that through love corresponds to my sense of life.
Besides, I know everything has an end — even the time. I love to create stuff, always different and visible. Because of its detail, of course.
The detail is the real statement of art for an artist, in my opinion.
Otherwise, I don't want to breathe my time. I want to feel it, to touch it, to design it in my way always.
I'm Adina Banea. And I love my name.
