ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Anca Irina Lefter is a complex artist living in Nice, France: a painter, an art designer focused on conceptual bag design with the signature AIL and a designer of accessories in leather and stage costumes under the signature collection - Ch2 Vinyls, specially created for artists David Guetta, Tara McDonald, Bill Patrick, Luciano.


Anca was born in Tulcea Danube- Delta in a family of artist and alchemist. Her first painting lesson was when she was 2 years old in Children's Palace in Tulcea with Master Vlahos as a teacher. When she was 15, she decided to move alone to Bucharest Romania to study mural arts in Tonitza High School- Art School- in Bucharest.

 

 Her dream was to study drawing in Lorenzo Di Medici in Firenze but Anca felt that the society was not ready to encourage artists back then she decided to study Business Management and master’s in business Negotiations in Media Pro University and to work in real- estates and sales in banks.
After six years, Anca decided to come back to arts, so she took everything she had and went to study in Barcelona - Spain at the Institute of Design, Accessories design and then, after she fall in love with leather started to study in the same institution Leather Design and Leather School in Santa Croce - Florence -Italy. 

Still she always painted during this time, and although her focus was to create bags, her first love is and remained painting.

 

Considered a real phenomenon, a romantic visionary with an excentric style, Anca is a complete conceptual artist, creative accessories designer and a painter. She loves to travel, to put people together, to connected with their hearts and to co-create. In 2013 she started her spiritual path and after traveling all over the world she discovered that people need to feel more then to stay in their mind all the time and to remember the forces of nature. This is how Portal Immersive Art Experience was born.
