I would also like to emphasize that the talent of the painter has now been honored through this retrospection of her artistic career - it is a finding that we are very happy with. Her art, which covers three decades, perfectly reflects the viewpoint through which she sees things. A point of view that essentially represents the rhythms and intensity of modern life. Whether she is painting cars, athletes taking part in the Olympic Games, or even construction in the 21st century cities, the themes remain always full of pulse, liveliness and power that thrives out of the canvas. Her heart is still hitting the pace of love that the Italian futurists have done for speed, it is obvious that it belongs to a very close circle of prominent artists who have painted about sports. Her new works that approaches the issues of big cities will undoubtedly have the same recognition in the future.
Mina's unique style uses strong lines and the intensity of color to the fullest as she translates her themes from reality into the language of painting. The way she sees things is possessed by a liveliness and demonstrates that she has overcome every classical definition of a "female painter" as her work moves steady in the space of dynamic contemporary artist. Its course is undoubtedly a creative and inspiring path and we wish it many years of success and achievement.
