About Zarina

I was born in Moscow, Russia in 1991. My family denied art as a career choice but I couldn't live without it. That's why at the age of 19 I've changed my life by committing myself to creating art.

When I was 4 years old, I first visited an art school and was immediately bewitched by the magic of art (and also by the fact that I received an A+ for a linear drawing of a crooked house). Due to financial problems, I became unable to continue the course at that school after a few weeks. Since then, every time I saw an artist sitting and drawing at the museum, I felt enchanted.

And I still am enchanted by art.


I am inspired by emotions and feelings. What’s happening inside and outside of people’s minds. Hope, faith, support, self-doubt – all of these themes interest me. And light! The changes of values, temperatures. Blending helps me to show the seamlessness of light transitions. If I was a bug, I would probably be one of those that are endlessly beating against light bulbs.

I'm in love with both the traditional approaches to painting and contemporary art trends.
