Irina Danilevskaya. Paintings.

Irina Danilevskaya was born in Moscow on September 30, 1980. She started drawing very early and followed her passion all her life.

The family lived on Sretenka Street in Moscow. Irina's father was entomologist, for his work he undertook many trips to Asia. He often took his daughter with him. Irina painted a lot during these Asian expeditions and brought home landscapes, which were becoming more and more refined.

When Irina was 16, she went to Paris with her father. She attended design courses at the Sorbonne for several months. In 1996-1998, she lived and worked in Berlin, then studied at the Moscow Academic Art College, with the teacher Ilya Pravdin having played a major role in her formation as an artist.

Soon after graduation, Irina, who had been constantly perfecting her skills, realized that most likely she will have to work 'for the desk drawer', with no appreciation and/or any demand for her artwork.

This realization, however, not only did not hinder or prevent her from painting. On the contrary, it gave her immense power and allowed her to escape from material ambitions and do what she herself wanted to do most - to paint, aiming to achieve the highest level in her art and technique.
