Born in Stockholm, Sweden 30 january, 1959, Manuela Vintilescu has been painting Japanese Popicons since 1999. Before that she studied public relations, graphics, silkscreen and painting in France, England and Sweden. Then for many years, worked in these different fields. The Japanese Popicons are a combination of all her experiences.
A great aunt, who was a well esteemed painter, influenced her since childhood with many fascinating stories from her years in Japan, around 1911. Her father, Jan Vintilescu, introduced Haiku poems in Sweden. His book “Haiku, Japanese lyric poetry in miniature” was published in 1959, the same year she was born. Manuela Vintilescu put her paintings and some of these haiku interpretations together in “FlowerYear” the book published 2001
