«The ardent expression of liberation is tangible in «Harmony» and «Escape» as the artist communicates her fundamental thoughts with tender and deliberate attention. Through the delicate combination of contemporary and traditional techniques, Malivani is able to cast an astute perspective of the history of the womandhood through an avant garde form of powerful visual communication».

For the Artist, feminine soul represents an inexhaustible source of inspiration. One of the most difficult goals of artists depicting the moods of the woman’s heart on canvas is to convey their force, depth, and meaning in abstract compositions.

Artist Diana Malivani, who by her training and profession, is a Doctor of Medicine (M.D., Ph.D.), is represented by internationally reputable art galleries. Her works regularly appear in prestigious exhibitions and compete in art contests in several countries, are published in international art journals, offered for sale on leading online art marketplaces, listed by auction houses, and held in the collections of both national museums and private collectors throughout the world.
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.
