About Valeria Duca


I started my career at an early age. During my first years I was absorbed with the abstract world of colour and fantasy.


At 12 years old I had the first opportunity to share this imaginary world with the public, during a personal exhibition held at the Museum of History and Archaeology of Republic of Moldova.


Although it all started as a childhood game, I soon felt a sense of duty to continue creating, to explore, to exhibit and to challenge. My focused changed in time towards more figurative works and I am currently most interested in painting portraits and exploring aspects of identity. 

"I believe in the necessity of art. I have to. I believe in the necessity of self-expression. I believe life is a continuous journey of self-discovery. I believe that to define is to limit. I believe real freedom lies with honesty. I believe our culture marks us, as well as every interaction with the world. These beliefs drive me to create, motivate me in a quest for truth and give me the courage to face it."

Multiple museums from Eastern Europe have eagerly collected her works from the very beginning. Valeria's paintings can be found in the public collections of:


-    Museum of History and Archaeology in Moldova

-    Museum of Visual Art in Galati, Romania

-    Museum of Western and Eastern Art in Odessa, Ukraine

-    Museum of the Village, Bucharest, Romania  

-    Folk Museum, the Palace of Parliament, Bucharest, Romania
