Teodora Pica is a senior Canadian visual artist living in Toronto who maintains her practice in Toronto and in the historic village of Brasov in Transylvania, Romania. She works in painting, sculpture, experimental printmaking and photography. The third generation of a family of artists, she first studied at the Ion Mincu University of Architecture in Bucharest. She obtained a Bachelor of Architecture degree from John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto, and later, she studied painting and drawing at the Ontario College of Art and Design University. In August 2014 she graduated from Goucher College, in Baltimore, MD, with a Master of Arts in Arts Administration diploma.  Pica has exhibited her work together with other independent artists internationally, collaborating with commercial and public galleries, as well as museums, in Canada, USA, Belgium, Italy, Romania and Mexico. 

She works onsite at ARTUNIT studio in Toronto.  An extension of the gallery, the studio is a creative “laboratory” where Pica initiates collaborative experimental art projects.

Pica is a member of CARFAC (Canadian Artists Representation, Le Front des Artistes Canadienes), a federally incorporated non-profit corporation operating as the sole national voice of Canada’s professional visual artists.
