ABOUT KORNILOVA

Kornilova Svetlana, Artist from Moscow, Russia, b. 1981.

I have higher art education, graduated from Stroganov Moscow State University of Industrial and Applied Arts (faculty of Monumental painting) in 2014. Since that I am working as a professional artist and upgrading my painting skills. Got Advanced course for professionals in Repin Saint Petersburgh State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. I took part in many individual and group exhibitions (first exhibition in 2009), and have also won several art awards.

Most of all I love to paint people. Because the matter is not only in form and color, everything is
much more interesting because of the internal content, the psychological and mental layers of the
models. These things affect the way the person is represented, what is surrounding him, the light
and the color scheme. So a picture is not just an image, but my way of telling a story or a fairy tale.
