Irena Orlov, innovative, contemporary fine artist, architect, designer, illustrator, photographer is known for creating captivating works which are full of energy.
Extraordinary versatile in her mediums, Irena could never imagine life without art. Having a successful carrier in architecture and design for quite a long time, she began to deal with fine art. She is an artist whose path in the fine arts has led her to a unique expression of mood and color. The combination of antique and a very clean, crisp modern design sense creates a highly prized, individual art style. Her images begin spontaneously and give expression to personal creativity and insight. Each piece is unique in design. Irena often prefers to think of herself as a craftsman, constructing, or interpreting imagery and messages from her conscious and subconscious mind.
Irena has lived in Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Canada, and now lives and works in Los Angeles.
My art is a response of my soul to the reality. I create an emotional space through visual abstract images. I’m curious in everything where I see energy of life. I see boundless and unforgettable opportunities of conveying real space for imagination and creating a new one. I try to develop an emotional and visual horizon of perception through my artworks as much as I constantly search for images that appeal to participation and emotional experience. This is an improvisation of reflections, feelings as well as definite and indefinite actions during the process of creation. Each of the improvisations merges into a specific form of art at the specific period of time.
