Hi, I’m Irina. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember but in the last couple of years I’ve settled with just my a5 drawing pad and a pencil. All my work is mostly portraits with an art nouveau/abstract/whimsical twist. I like unusual forms, patterns, tiny lines and the feeling of suspense. In my drawings I mix 2d and 3d shapes, focusing on maximalistic details in an attempt to pour onto the paper what is going on in my head at the time whenever I struggle to put it into words. Usually I draw most of my inspiration for the visuals from music, editorial shoots and botanicals.
I started doing this consistently mostly for myself, but felt the need to share and expand in hopes that my work and perspective would resonate with some.
