My name is Noemi Gunea. I’m a Romanian model, artist, writer and actress based in London. I trained at the Conservatoire National Superieur D’art Dramatique in Paris and Central Saint Martins in London.

My work has previously been shown at the Tate Modern, British Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, South London Gallery, Arebyte Gallery.

I make up half of performance duo Cheap Thrills. Together, we were shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2024, longlisted as Best UK New Artist in 2022 by Saatchi and Robert Walters + for an Aesthetica Prize in 2018.

My work is a reflection of my experiences navigating through different cultures and perspectives, exploring the intersections of identity and community engagement. My interests in surrealism, dance, comedy, quantum physics and economics inform my artistic practice, inspiring me to think critically about the systems that impact our lives. 

I shapeshift and challenge assumptions, creating spaces where people can come together to connect, dream and take steps towards changing their environments. Ultimately, my practice is a reflection of my belief in the transformative power of creativity and collaboration. I hope to inspire people to be brave, intentional and imaginative in their own lives and in the world around them.
