About Svetlana Kurmaz

I am a visual artist. I paint all my life. I have a professional education . Art is my passion, my responsibility and my mission. It is exactly what i can do in a best way for this world and for myself.

My Paintings are Visual Poems that tell the Stories inspired by Imagination and my personal experience of Life.

I have a very deep appreciation for all those who collect my work. The collectors enable and add momentum to my creative arc as an artist. My work is not just a dialogue with myself , but hopefully will resonate with others personal stories as well. The Painting means for me bring more joy , peace and harmony at this world.

I participated in more than 100 exhibitions and art fairs all over the world : Russia, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, UK and USA.





Education

As a teenager I studied art in art school besides high school. After having graduated from the Faculty of Art of Krasnodar State University "summa cum laude" during 7 years I had taught an academical drawing and composition there.
