Born in the Siberian City of Former Soviet Union, Larissa, moved to Vancouver, BC, Canada in 2001, where she has been residing since that time. In Canada she developed her artistic style through the Fine Art academical techniques of painting, drawing, design, sculpture and ceramic studios whilst studying Art history and philosophy. Larissa’s Art employs impulsive and unpredictable brush strokes to promote social intercourse with a viewer.Her painting style is a combination of the gestural traces of the object with intricate abstract. It renders her dreams for the future, love or playful flirtation in the moment of the individual obscurity and ominous.She believes, “ART could shift for the better perspective the standpoint not only of the individual but of societies as well”. Larissa has participated in many group exhibitions in Canada and internationally. Her works belong to private and public collections in Canada and Internationally. She was awarded ‘HONOR THE ARTS IN CREATIVITY AND EXCELLENCE’ in Italy.
