Featured Artist: Lana Yurinova-Moes
Notes from the Artist:
I was born in a small town of Russia that has a unique location directly on the border Europe and Asia. I grew up in a family of artist’s who nurtured and encouraged my creative talent. I spent 6 years in Junior Art School and 4 years in University with formal studies focused on the traditions of the Russian Realistic School or Art, where my specialty was portraiture.
In November of 1998 my kids and I immigrated to America. I keep my maiden name to honor my mother life and her desire to give the best to her child. Since then I’ve lived in Florida, working as a freelance artist first and an art teacher at the local prep school. I love to travel and I love Florida. I feel that my home is here now.
For these last years my paintings became more and more abstract with bright expressive color. While I am capable of working in different genres, one of my favorites is a figurative. They inspire nostalgia about previous generations, events and cultures and capture the beauty, wonder and emotion of the human experience. Whether it is a portrait, a genre, a landscape or a still-life, I Like touching one’s soul, challenging one’s mind, and not allowing the beholder to remain indifferent.
My work is displayed in both public and private collections throughout Russia, Europe, Australia and the United States.
I am a published and gallery artist that creates one of a kind, GALLERY QUALITY PAINTINGS at reasonable prices, you will enjoy and treasure this paining for many years.
