About Irina Markevich

My name is Irina Markevich
I was born in Moscow, Russia.
I am a professional designer and artist.
I was very lucky, and since childhood I have always been engaged in creativity.
I graduated from Art school,
then Stavropol Regional school of Design,
I studied at the Higher school of Design with the famous enamel artist Nikolai Vdovkin,
I was educated in Fine Arts from Stavropol State Pedagogical Institute.
And a year studied in Italy, at the school of Fashion-Milan Fashion Campus.
From 2003 to 2009 I was the head of the Department of "Costume Design" in the Stavropol regional school of design.
Where I taught drawing, painting, composition, modeling and costume history.
This amazing time has given me a lot.
It was a great practice and communication experience with many students, artists and designers.
In 2004, after the regional exhibition I was accepted to the Creative Union of Artists of Russia and International Federation of Artists.
Since 2009 I have dedicated myself to launching and developing my brand of clothes in the style of family look - same clothes for mother and daughter - MARK'A.
I am the mastermind and chief designer of the company.
Our feature is bright unusual prints, many of which I create myself.
We ourselves print drawings on fabrics, from which we then sew clothes.
The last few years, I've been traveling a lot.
Literally every 2 months I make new trips and discover our beautiful world.
I do a lot of sketches, paint landscapes or create unusual compositions.
Different places of our planet, meetings, people and events give me completely different impressions - and correspondingly different techniques of execution
Sometimes I just don't have the patience to wait for the moment when I can finally draw.
I started with small formats, but now I have moved to oil and acrylic painting on large canvases.
I devote a lot of time to spiritual practices and self-development.
This experience helps me to be realized in creativity.
I love color and light, its shades and iridescence. I like to try new materials and techniques,
mix them in the most unusual variations.
I do not want to limit myself and create art objects in several directions.
Abstract painting on impressions from my trips. Graphic compositions on very exciting topics for me.
History - that's what I call a series of works with a fabulous. Landscapes and sketches from travels.
Perhaps over time all this will merge into one style,
but while I'm looking for, and fruitfully working in all directions.
I've always been interested in questions:
Where does the universe end?
What is infinity?
The statement that the beauty of art and knowledge is a universal international language, a language that we can speak even through time.
My favorite science is physics. But at the same time, I am interested in spiritual knowledge and practices. I read a lot and explore the world.
Inner discoveries, the energy that appears in these moments and requires a splash – this is the basis of my creativity. I just can't help but draw, write. I feel physically bad when I do not work for a long time with paints and brushes. Pastel or at least a simple pencil.
I am happy that I live in a time of freedom of information, freedom of movement and travel, freedom of creativity.
My paintings are a symbiosis of everything that happens in my soul, the search for answers to questions, the brightest impressions of the knowledge gained, and the beauty seen.
