Inessa Kalabekova

Inessa Kalabekova

Born: 1974

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

I became an artist just before my daughter Alice was born. Yes, I was into the art since I was young. Yes, I attended art school for 7 years and then drew, painted, designed as part of my Degree and career in Architecture and Design. However, I only started calling myself an artist just before my daughter was born. While pregnant with her, I finally had the time to travelled extensively in pursuit of my art. I sharpened my skills under renowned artists at Central St. Martin’s College of Arts in London, the Ruskin School University of Oxford, and the Russian Academy of Arts.
Dance is a big part of my life. I was full time dancer for ten years. Doing choreography, making my own costumes. Picking dance skill along the way at LaSalle and ECNAD company.
My Art is reflection of me. It is complex-choreographed as a dance. Collages is made from the items I found while traveling and I think the ideas of collages are from dance costume making background. I like to think of myself as the creator of My own ideal world. Where I can be lost sometime. My very own Magical World!

Inessa Kalabekova In The Studio

"I paint the delight of a frosty day when you fall out to your home all icy and straight to the warm place.I paint a forest and secrets under every rock. Hospital for ants in grandma ‘s house. Orchard garden with small apples. And what a happiness it is to open a jar of preserve sugared apples and put a whole apple in your mouth."

More About Inessa Kalabekova

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Natura, kids, music, friends, museum art.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

How do I create paintings? First, I create the background, it is how I create the mood of the painting. Next, I turn to my sketch book, where I experiment and collect sketches, themes, ideas, patterns, quotes, life drawings, etc. It leads to creating a story that inspired the painting. I do have a plan when I start, however I know that my initial plan will be changed completely later. Painting evolves while I am working on it. Many of my painting are inspired by the time I spend with my daughters.
