Artist Biography

The Artist’s creative journey began at birth: Diana was born on the coast of the Black Sea, bathed in the riotous profusion of the colors of the Caucasus. Her love as a child for fairy tales and pictures later developed into a desire to convey, to those hearing and viewing her work, the great feeling for nature which enhances her life and the lives of those she loves.

Diana’s paintings reflect her soul, her love for music and nature, for an infinite variety of melodies and sounds, for shades and colors, for all that nature creates: the rustling of wet leaves and the first rays of dawn, the roar of the sea surf and the scent of a flowering meadow, the flight of screeching gulls and dewdrops on a blossoming rose... As she draws flowers and depicts landscapes (the principal themes of her artwork), deals with marine subjects, creates abstract compositions, and transfers music to canvas (one of the Artist’s main Art Projects bears the name «Seeing Music»), Diana strives to share these feelings with others, to share with others a part of her soul.

Diana Malivani is also the author and illustrator of children’s books published in Russian, English, French and German. After many years spent in Europe (especially, in France and in Cyprus), Diana returned to Russia and she now lives with her family in Saint Petersburg.

Artist Statement

Diana Malivani is always in the mood to create: this happy inclination and impulse arise spontaneously within her and form an integral part of her life. Nature, for Diana, is the best source of new ideas. A walk along the Mediterranean coast, contemplation of the high crowns of the eucalyptus and palms against the background of the setting sun, and the boundless southern sky create the illusion that the surrounding world is inexhaustible and limitless: this is what fills the Artist with energy and inspiration. Diana believes that it is very important for a human being to be in harmony with self and nature. Only then is it possible to commune with all the beauty of the surrounding world, hear the murmur of the trees and flowers, be in touch with the music of waterfalls and torrential rain, and sense the breath of the sea and passing clouds.

The creative process, this special magical world in which the Artist is submerged, is invariably accompanied by music, which has always occupied an important place in Diana’s life. Listening to classical and modern music, she is transported to a special realm where different images and pictures appear, sometimes just bright splashes of color responding to each other, which the Artist then tries to transfer to canvas. Diana’s artworks reflect the images evoked in her soul as she listens to music. The Artist believes that painting and music are interconnected by special deep inner ties having the same foundation as the diverse manifestations of life. Diana, with her background in medicine, is convinced that painting, like music, can heal spiritual wounds and help people find their own life paths.

About Diana Malivani


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I always was attracted to what was beautiful. I loved to look at pictures by the great Russian masters, peering intently at the details of their work and dreaming of one day repeating those visions. I always had brushes and paints on hand. Gradually the simple hobby of drawing turned into a kind of mania for painting: "no day without a brush".


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

For me, the most important in creative process is finding beauty in everyday life. A painter looks at the world with “fresh eyes”, like a child seeing something for the first time. This allows me to see what others do not notice, and to draw familiar objects in a special way. The artist can see, feel, and think in a special way, and the task of the artist is to bring a small part of his or her world to the viewer.


IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Seeing Music, Seeing the Invisible


IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

I was born in the USSR, grew up in Moscow, spent several years in France and in Cyprus, and now live in Saint Petersburg. It is well known that both Russian painting and the work of French masters are highly valued in the art world. It was the Russian and French impressionist schools that influenced my creative work. However, I prefer not to tell the names of the artists, in order to avoid any comparison between their artworks and mine.


IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

Music. The creative process is invariably accompanied by classical or modern music.


IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

I received the most valuable advice from an artist who appeared and gradually grew in my soul, that is, from myself. It is the advice to always be yourself, never follow the market, and always go on your own path.


IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

For a walk along the Mediterranean coast and contemplation of the high crowns of the eucalyptus.
