    Event: Last drop of innocence

    Dates: April 14, 2012 - May 27, 2012

    Venue: Dorothy Circus Gallery,, Rome, Italy

    Valentina leaves her personal and exaggerated view of daily life in order to start a fairy and mythological journey into the forests of the subconscious, in the flames of love, through a nature that is at times Nordic and at times infernal.
    Her characters turns into curious elves in love, scared and naughty, bewitched and bewitching little creatures who, with simple gestures or enigmatic expressions, invite us to follow them in their journey, even if for a minute only. So we'll find ourselves first in a dark wood where our hero of the moment defeats his lovers monsters before leaving her (Battle For Love), then in a gloomy and treacherous Disney world (This Is Not Disneyland) and then again in a damp cave haunted by echoes and memories of a distant love. Strange beings with pointed ears and Pulcinella masks, dotted unicorns and sneering creatures, are coming out from thin blue flowers which drip their nectar on the heads of lovers and gods.
    In Valentina Brostean underworld, filled

    Event: Stories from a Neverland

    Dates: Feb. 1, 2012 - March 1, 2012

    Venue: Galo Art Gallery, Torino, Italy

    My body of work is built of melancholic interaction between man-made status symbols and frozen moments of the Utopian childhood memories. Strongly focused on figurative narration my characters simply reflects us - modern society without it's masks. Yet the only place where we are truly revealed the way we are - is one from the inside. If you examine my work closely, you might come to the realization that my creatures are really kind of self portraits, set in a fantastical landscapes of imaginary world which echoes of her own… a bitter, yet sweetly coated prescription for modern life.
