About Elena Lukina

For me art is not only a way of self-expression, but also a source of joy and love.

My artistic approach to painting comes down to the caring transmission of what I saw, participation in what is happening, animation, I live each of my works. There are no ready-made answers and rules, the work develops as if by itself, sometimes without my consent. I would like to see one thing, but the work itself dictates and affirms.
Probably, this happens when what has developed in the picture leads to harmony, balance, spiritual completeness.

Education

- Saharov Art Studio, Moscow, Russia
School of Contemporary Painting that belongs to the famous impressionist painter Igor Sakharov.
- Vladimir Kozin studio
I decided not to stop on the things that I have achieved and continue to improve my skills in the studio of Professor Vladimir Kozin. The age of this great master is 96 years old
This great master is 96 years old and for 36 years of his life he was in charge of the painting department at the Latvian Academy of Arts.
His deep experience in the professional area helped me to receive unique 40'S old school knowledge about painting.
I am proud that I had the opportunity to learn from him.
