"The Anthropomorphism of Media" is a collective project by Oana Clițan (Romania), Sylvana D'Angelo (Canada) and Larissa Monteiro (Holland). The three international artists aim to "explore social media as a new way to create art and design in the context of long-distance collaborations and the anthropomorphism of the internet as a tool to understanding the behaviour of technology".

Oana Clițan (b. 1989) is a Romanian visual artist and designer. Her work falls at the intersection of design, illustration and art, investigating kitsch and popular culture mechanisms and their interaction with language. She usually creates digital collages, animated gifs and physical pieces which result in expressive or illustrative typography, but at the same time, she moves through different techniques and aesthetics, in order to add another layer of content and meaning to the work. Her process consists of analyzing, rearranging, reinterpreting and re-contextualizing kitsch or pop culture elements so as to offer a new perspective on the shifting meanings of symbols and the interpretability and commodification of language. With a professional background in graphic design and a personal background in post-communist Romania, Oana Clițan is currently based in Rotterdam (Holland), where she works as a designer and illustrator. She graduated from The Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca (2011). While studying for her Master's degree in Graphic Design at AKV (Akademie voor Kunst en Vormgeving) "St. Joost" in Breda, Holland (2014), she started her research into kitsch and pop culture, frequently using the language of contemporary mass media in her work with a critical eye. She had several solo shows and participated in a number of group shows and festivals in Romania, Holland, Canada, and the US. Her latest project "Goodbye Expectations", which deals with IKEA’s tactics in attracting the consumer, has been recently exhibited at Visual Kontakt Gallery in Cluj-Napoca.
