ADINNA® formerly known as Adina Cicort, born December 1978 in Bucharest, Romania, is a painter and photographer who lives and works in Dallas, TX since 2004. ADINNA’s influences lie in Fauvism and Abstract Expressionism. Self taught, she started drawing and painting as a child. Growing up in a family of artisans, she was immersed in the practice of arts and crafts from an early age. ADINNA remembers the time spent with her family at her grandparents’ home in the countryside, learning how to make decorative objects from Earth-based ingredients. Situated on sacred grounds with breathtaking natural beauty, she grew up surrounded by ancient wisdom, myths and legends, spirituality and folk art. ADINNA’s childhood memories, the light, colors and textures, are today expressed in her abstract paintings and photography. ADINNA’s work conveys the essence of a golden era, in which she relates to her past, and taps into the future. Light, emotions, ancient symbols, all translate into color, geometry and dimension. Her connection with the eternal source of light, stands beyond time and the material.

ADINNA’s abstract works are created with mixed media techniques and mainly acrylic and oil based. Multicultural, speaker of six different languages, she is a world explorer and seeker of life’s fundamental truths.

Her work was represented at Artexpo New York, Art Monaco on French Riviera, Architectural Digest Design Show in NYC, Spectrum Miami, and at Saatchi Art, Gallery 3, Ten 20 Gallery, Luminarte Gallery, Kettle Gallery and other. As well as 2016′ Art in America Guide to Museums, Galleries and Artists. Additionally, her work was selected for the 2017 Florence, Italy Biennale.


Since early beginnings, my art is a reflection on the nature of the universe and the origin of soul. My works are visual metaphors about self-identity, freedom of expression, memories from a distant past or a glimpse into the future. Each piece is an invitation to travel beyond structure, time and space. Often bringing to light sacred geometry and ancient subjects and symbols, am creating a space for thought and emotion.
