Galina's paintings are abstract in nature and are created anew each time in the process of intuitively following the imagination, in most cases without any preliminary sketches. Those are multi-layered surfaces with a rich texture that exposes the underlying layers of paint, with rhythm, direction and a complex color pattern.
Galina’s path to painting was long, but each step left its mark on her artistic style, defining and shaping it year after year. Born in Dushanbe she was surrounded by art at an early age: her father was interested in met- al stamping, wood carving, sculpture and photography, constantly inviting home his friends — artisans and artists — to work together and discuss art. In the early 90’s, Galina went with her parents to Russia, where her family settled in Stavropol after a series of moves. She was lucky to have a school and teachers who, very rare for that time, tried to give new skills and strongly supported the passion for art in their students, teaching them new art techniques. After graduating from the Institute with a degree in Advertising, Galina immediately plunged back into the creative world, starting with photography. In the late 2000s, she became a professional graphic designer and later started drawing commercial illustrations. Galina’s interest in calligraphy, with special preference to the technique of writing with a broad pen and expressive calligraphy with a cola pen, developed confident strokes and the method of working with paint by rubbing, determining her future creativity.
