Irina Pushkareva creates unique highly stylized oil paintings with moving wave-like sections of colors. Pushkareva developed this painting technique in 2016, when she was still a sophomore in Parsons. She did not like the traditional approach to oil painting, so she decided to play around with the medium, and invent her own contemporary oil painting style.

Since moving to Florida from New York in 2018, Irina Pushkareva has been fascinated with the beauty of the Atlantic ocean and especially - its wildlife. She decided to focus her artistic practice on marine life hoping to draw the viewers' attention to the harmony of the underwater world, and the fascinating beauty of its inhabitants.
