My name is Arina Malukova. I was born in Kiev but for the last four decades have been living and working in New York.
My work is about movement, color and light. In my paintings I create imaginary, mystic landscapes with exotic animals and fantastic characters.
To explore new ideas, I sketch and crate paper collages. This process of exploration helps me to define and finalize my ideas for future paintings. My visual experiments never stops and I am always surprised by the outcome of each work.
I am inspired by Japanese culture and fashion, people on streets, contemporary artists and photographers.
Art is my profession and a biggest passion. There is a whole worlds of ideas to explore!
