My name is Andrew Perenko, was born in 1997 in Kiev, Ukraine. I started drawing from 6 years. And over time, interest and need for art only grew up. I like to create something new. Mixing everything old and new, mixing opposing things is what inspires me. I don't try to reveal the essence of things, I want to convey the impression of them. I paint in mixed techniques with oils and acrylics. In the painting "Indefinite sky of the future" I'm thinking about the topic of instability, and the constant movement of objects in nature. The sky has always interested humanity. Once people believed that Gods live there, but now we know that behind the clouds is hiding much more interesting and large-scale things. One thing is clear, that thousands of years ago, or in a thousand years a person still will be attracted by the ease of clouds, and by what lies behind them.
The artist, Inna Zubareva lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland. Inna spent her childhood in Russia, where she has finished Arts school with honors. Her drawings and paintings were exhibited internationally already in her earlier years, during her days at the arts school. Her work is inspired by the individuality of all physical things and energies found in the natural world with high emphasis on the aesthetic beauty, balance and harmony.
Moving to Switzerland in 2005, nudged her in another direction. Inna has obtained Doctorate of Business Administration with a specialization on Behavior Finance. A career in finance taught her business sense and enhanced her work ethic. Inna also lived and developed herself professionally in New York, Stockholm and Paris. However, she always kept a passion for painting. She was working as a part-time artist since 2008. Big part of her past work consists of commissions in various styles held in private collections around the world.
In recent years, Inna abandoned finance industry in favor of painting, to produce the maximum from her true essence in life – being a painter and artist. Today, she dedicates herself fully to the craft of painting, as well as developing a style that distinguishes her on the national stage as well as on the international stage. This internationally-active artist continues to work in her studio in Geneva. You can learn more about her artist story, inspiration and motivation, by visiting Instagram blog: @kislukasss.
Inna enjoys painting landscapes, especially focusing on changing things like the light and the sky, or the movement in the water. Her aim is to capture this unique moments, gaining a deeper understanding of nature and being present to see the little moments that otherwise might be missed. Behind each representation in her paintings there is thought on the flow, making her works harmonious and complete.
Future exhibitions: Amsterdam International Art Fair, August 30-31, 2019.
My love affair with art began at a very early age. By the age of five, I only wanted two things in life, books and paints...and not much has changed since then. As corny as it might sound, I would have to lay a substantial amount of blame on the Easter Bunny. Being the best artist in my kindergarten class, I was chosen to paint a very large Easter Bunny to be put on display at the school. I was so proud to have my artwork on display for everyone to see, and from that moment on, I knew I wanted to paint, I wanted to create. Hard to believe that a five year old could be filled with so much pride and such a sense of accomplishment, but it truly filled me with joy. And so it began. I have always been a willing slave to the senses, always fascinated with what I see, touch, smell, and feel. I'm the one that lingers after the lavish party and studies the sadness of the wilting flowers in the vase, the one that lags behind the hiking group to gently run my fingers over the soft moss on the tree trunk. I'm the one who slips outside in the night, closes her eyes and says, 'it's going to snow, I can smell it in the night air', the one who drops everything to listen to the notes of a bird's song. I'm the one who leans in closely to smell the sweetness of a
baby's breath, the one who caresses a river stone over and over in her hand, marvelling at it's smoothness. Yes, I'm that one...that's me.
Never a fan of conformity, I've been self-employed most of my life, built my own roads, worn many different hats, and run several companies. I travelled as much as I could, always trying to satisfy that desire to see more, learn more, experience more, so I could express that through my art. I'm a self-taught artist, I've never taken an art class and likely never will. I just paint what I feel and try to share that with others. If I can make someone smile, have a happy thought, relive a great memory or make them forget their pain for a minute or two, then I've done what I set out to do... make the world a better place, just for a moment.
This is me.
