Mirroring the torn posters seen all a r o u n d B e r l i n , I g o r ’s w o r k i m p r e s s e s a futuristic feeling, yet is inspired by t h i n g s o f t h e p a s t s u c h a s h i s t o r y, ancient cultures, myths and old faiths, as well as nature and science. The layers often expose a realist object behind the more abstract top layer. Igor sees himself as translating the nature of human life into his work (more will be revealed in time)

These are mysterious ar tworks which take the energy of a curious mind to understand - there is a message here, but the ar tist is not giving much a w a y. Perhaps some clue is derived from the series names: Utro (last page), Gravity (left based on the pole shift theor y) and Pars pro toto (opposite) both from the series Schein und Sein, which translates from the German into ‘A p p e a r a n c e a n d B e i n g ’. Pars pro toto by the w a y m e a n s ‘a p a r t o r aspect of something taken as representative o f t h e w h o l e’

I g o r ’s u n i q u e a p p r o a c h h a s d e f i n e d h i s s t y l e , h e says “I always paint in a realistic manner. but at the same time I want to go deeper. The second step is to rework the finished piece. That means I paint over that picture again and again, so that at the end we see some fragment from the realism which was present in the beginning. These fragments are never planned, but are created intuitively” The ar tists explains “The fragments in my pictures are full of information. But this information is not visible as a whole. The models I paint, I never met before. I just asked them by accident to sit for a por trait. That situation is actually a fragment itself. The fragments are also a kind of meditation on and in the colour sur faces w h i c h a r e a l w a y s p a i n t e d h o r i z o n t a l l y.

Igor remembers one of his best reviews was of his first solo exhibition: the writer totally understood the whole concept without any interview with him, a wonder ful moment. The ar tist graduated from the Hochschule fßr Kunst, Design und Populäre Musik in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany in 2011, and has had many solo and group shows. His works are in several private c o l l e c t i o n s i n c o u n t r i e s s u c h a s G e r m a n y, G r e a t Britain, the USA and Switzerland. The ar tworks are deceptively large and so are an attractive option both from a visual and a cerebral standpoint.

From her work as a therapist with children and families, she believes in the healing power of ar t and ar t therapy because both ar t and therapy complement each o t h e r p e r f e c t l y. C o n v e r s e l y, ar t also gives her a lot of inspiration and joy to meet people and be their initiator. She has 2 main styles, her abstracts and dance pictures which she sees as a fun supplement.

With regard to her inspiration and process, she takes many photos that directly or most often indirectly inspire her with a mood or an idea for an image. She also receives impressions that fill her head and body and she brings these alive with large arm movements transferred onto the canvas expressing a dream or a change. She paints expressively and uses many different tools: brushes, worn bill cards, sticks, cardboard pieces, and ver y often the fingers. In addition to the human condition, nature and music are a constant source of inspiration. The results are huge pictures with lots of layers and colours.

Ana says “I was born an ar tist, but it was always difficult for me to decide on an ar t form. It was only as an adult that I realised that I really don’t have to d e c i d e” - h e n c e h e r e x p r e s s i o n i n w o r d s , m u s i c a n d a r t . The novels plot covers a woman who quits her job in Marketing and star ts to paint. The main character is inter viewed and discusses the idea of meditating for peace. The author says that the book has ended up being a self-fulfilling prophecy due to the novel unintentionally taking her back to painting p r o f e s s i o n a l l y, j u s t a s t h e m a i n c h a r a c t e r d o e s . Ana grew up in Hamburg, attending the International School of Hamburg where students were given many oppor tunities to learn ar t and drama. She danced at the Balletzentrum Hamburg, which is the school for the official Hamburg Ballet and worked as a social m e d i a e x e c u t i v e f o r t w o M T V b r a n d s ( V I VA a n d Comedy Central). She studied International Business Management at University and was also trained in acting / per forming ar ts at Italia Conti School of P e r f o r m i n g A r t s a s w e l l a s t h e S y l v i a Yo u n g D r a m a School in London.
