Effervescent and poetic—that is the resounding theme for artist Inessa K’s wildly original artworks. Her gorgeous collages are as complexly choreographed as a dance, which makes sense because Inessa is a dancer, too.
Although born in Kazakhstan and a citizen of Russia, Inessa has travelled extensively in pursuit of her art. She sharpened her skills under renowned artists at Central St. Martin’s College of Arts in London, the Ruskin School University of Oxford, and the Russian Academy of Arts, and has called Singapore her home for the last 15 years.
Inessa's artworks are in private collections in UK, Singapore, Russia, Kazakhstan, Japan, Australia, Austria, India, and Dubai.
She obtained a Degree in Architecture & Design, has sharpened her painting skills under guidance of renowned artists like Ewa Gargulinska and Guy Noble at Central St. Martin's College of University of Arts London & Sarah Simblet at The Ruskin School of Oxford University. Dorokhova Katerinna at Russian Academy of Arts (Repin Art Academy).
