Irina Drozd


Lives and works in St. Petersburg and Pasca (Hungary)


In her paintings, Irina Drozd depicts a fantasy world filled with amazing creatures and characters: her toy monsters at the same time touch and frighten, sometimes enchanting, and presented to the viewer on silver platters can cause disgust at all. The heroines of her paintings are almost always girls, girls, women - often in pairs or doubles, with animals or monsters. The artist explores the nature of femininity, modern stereotypes, and new archetypes of femininity, and also often refers to the theme of childhood and play.


From 2016 to the present, he has been on the list of the Russian investment art rating 49ART. Group and individual exhibitions were held in St. Petersburg and Moscow, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Lyon, and Budapest. The artist's works were exhibited at the Moscow and Krasnoyarsk Biennales of Contemporary Art. She took part in the residencies of the Marino Marini Museum in Florence, the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris, as well as in the Berlin Higher Art School Berlin Weissensee School of Art.
