Iryna Maksymova was born in 1991 in Kolomyia.
She lives and works in Lviv, Ukraine. Iryna is a fresh new discovery which I am very excited about!
With a degree in Graphic Design, Iryna started to paint full time only two years ago but throughout her life she was always painting in her spare time. Iryna combines colourful domestic settings with exotic, often magic-tinged creatures, whose facial features contort in displays of distress or agony, encouraging the viewer to question humans’ feelings of supremacy over animals. Her figurative expression on canvas comes from her emotional experiences and the topics which affects her life.The storyline, the color contrasts and characters reflect the deepest part of her inner feelings. Every work is a statement, a manifesto, it’s a call for action.
