Larisa Ilieva lives and works in Paris, France and Sofia, Bulgaria.


« I like to travel in the history of art, to inspire and enrich my artistic research.
Using the same language composed by previous artists, I want to develop it and release my creation against the clichés established.
The mixture of images already existing in art with contemporary sensibility is the basis on which I try to build my own territory in art. Realizing a game of different aesthetic vibrations, my conception opens to new overlays and bridges between real and abstract, decorative and picturesque. I prefer details and fragments that I make with oriental precision. At the beginning of my work my compositions emerge from the chaos of untreated pure colors, which then give birth to a harmony of new nuances and forms that are organized in unity. The black line is a very important thing in my works, because it has the function of reinforcing the intensity of the painting, which begins to shine like on the stained glass window.
When I paint, I always fall into a kind of contemplation of my world of fairy creatures and sacraments.
The themes of love, harmony, beauty, eternity remain close to my nature.
I prefer to work with acrylic because it is very well combined with most techniques such as collage, oil, watercolor, ink, pastel. I like working with these techniques quite varied, because they are complementary and affect my sensitivity. At the moment, I am happy to use the combination of acrylic and Indian ink. This allows me to obtain in my works a different structure of the surface. Some areas seem hyperactive, others vibrate according to the light, while others overflow. »
