About my art by Mihaela Ivanova

I am an artist who mainly paint landscapes trying to deriving the whole enchantment of the object of nature. The non-standard point of view and in the colour brought to conventionality are characteristic of my creative style. In my works shapes of nature are brought to allegory and symbolism. I explore the possible states of space and the possible existence in them, regardless of what is happening in reality.

In my paintings I always start with a specific natural motif. I strive to preserve the characteristic image that initially excited me. I am convinced that art is another reality that must reflect our thoughts, emotions and experiences. Therefore, in the process of creating the painting, I change the natural forms, emphasize the rhythm of the repetitive elements, reinforce the contrasts of light and achieve my philosophical and poetic generalization. The most important principles in my paintings are space and light.

I work in the classical techniques of oil painting and watercolor.
