Irina Basalik’s paintings embody the secret wishes and dreams of the human soul. The young Ukrainian artist lived in numerous countries in Europe and Middle East before settling down in Costa Blanca in Spain. In her work, aspects of European culture are linked with oriental traditions. Irina’s strong imagination and her dreams are an important source of inspiration for her paintings. Lively figures and abstract bodies play and dance on her canvases, fish fly, a violin smokes a cigarette – Irina’s world is full of surrealist sceneries. The artist has been part of the international art scene for10 years and has participated in numerous exhibitions around Europe.
