With pieces of materials actually sticking out of the canvas, the Andreea Anghel Damaged People installation series portrays physically and mentally wounded individuals.

The expressive portraits are made using charcoal on with protruding elements adding 3D texture and visual depth to the works. These extra pieces are extensions of the drawings into the physical world, showing a literal aspect to their pain and mental anguish. Using branches, animal antlers and other organic materials, the artist wants the viewer to interact with the imagery as it takes the artwork out of the 2D world and encroaches on their space.

Torn tights, nudity and abrasive lines add to the gritty personalities portrayed in the Andreea Anghel Damaged People series.
