Artist Name

Albina Bunina

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Moscow

I was born in the small town of Orenburg, where I studied at a children's art school as a child. Later, trying to combine her favorite occupation and a future more technical profession, she entered the institute for a course in graphic design, but after studying for two years, she moved to St. Petersburg, where she continued her studies in her chosen specialty and simultaneously began working as a designer and illustrator. In 2010, I successfully graduated from the Institute of Decorative and Applied Arts, moved to Moscow and began working as a designer and illustrator in the AST book publishing house, and then in an advertising agency.
In 2012, I took up painting as a hobby and in 2014, after going on maternity leave, I started building a career as an artist and commercial illustrator.
Currently, my paintings are in private collections in England, Iceland, Canada, France, Luxembourg, Israel, Uzbekistan and Russia.

More About Albina Bunina

Question IconWhat inspires you?

As an artist, I am interested in the processes of containment, processing and transforming of internal contents that literally take on flesh and density on my canvases. I am inspired and thrilled by episodes of contact with art, which help the artist and the viewer reflect on the past, deal with the present and foresee the future.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

Painting is my medium, the “mediator” not only between me and the viewer, but also between the layers of my mental, emotional, physiological and visual experience. Painting, putting the layers of paint and strokes, drawing lines, the process of “drawing myself out” is paramount in my art. My painting is an act of healing, no matter how immodest it may sound. It's a tricky and sophisticated procedure, but it happens dartingly and almost unconsciously.

Question IconWhat is the most important tool when creating your work?

Time, silence, linen canvas.

Question IconWhere do you go for inspiration?

I'm going inside myself
