About Gennadiy Ivanov
My artists carrier started after college graduation in the early 90s. From there I'm worked in art co-operative and painted a big scale paintings and murals, it was nice practice. Also, I spent my time painting landscapes, while the subjects were not always inspiring for me it gave me the chance to perfect my skills and to experiment with new techniques. Later, I'm took a residency in a museum in Bobruisk and later set self up working in my own studio supporting self by painting pictures and also as an interior designer. I have always found the male like a female body inspiring and coming to England has given me the freedom to paint in the way I want. I aspire to show the beauty of the male and female body and the romanticism, the sentimentality and the character. My paintings are about colour, life can be quite grey and I want my paintings to make people feel good. I like to work in different styles, particularly in the impressionist style and I prefer to work big. To work in different styles giving my opportunity to find unusual and creative approach to paint a picture. I have always been quit experimental trying different materials, paints and painting techniques but the medium I prefer is oil paintings. You can call it fusion style. I had many exhibitions in Belarus, Russia, Lithuania, Holland, France and in the UK-Norwich, Norfolk, Cambridge , London, Edinburgh. My project is takes information from the past, this is a characters, graphics, performances,and archival research. Life is characterized by time, the dynamics and the variable changes. But in death and art it is fossilized life in an everlasting bond, an eternal relationship with the future, it becomes a memory. These memories of the past are adapted to the modern audience, a conversation, an unexpected visit, new ideas and visual symbols. It is like a gateway to the future. The pictures show affiliation to a specific topic in the past, but they catapult us into the modern world. studioart.org.uk www.gennadiy.co.uk The theme of love is inexhaustible. Love is needed by everyone in their lifetime - we wait for it and are drawn to it. Love cannot be overcome by any fear or greed - not anything. Love is the pursuit of the Ideal. Love can be various. Love for the motherland, for parents, for friends, for art, for our children, for partners. Love is a source of beauty, patience, experience, concerns and worries. My love is for art! It has lasted more than twenty-five years and it hurts! It is about belief in myself, my dreams and my experiences. It is composed of many stories which are inextricably linked and form the basis of my life and being. Art is my first love!
