Irina Pushkareva was born in Kurgan, Russia, and was trained in traditional ways of painting and drawing in Arkhangelsk Art Academy in Moscow. Since graduating from Parsons, The New School with BFA in Fine Art in 2018, she has been creating and showing her work in the United States. 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 invented her own contemporary oil painting style. 

Irina's mission as an artist is to empower you to stay true to yourself and do what you love by bringing you the feelings of serenity and joy through her intricate paintings of the natural world. Watching animals in the wild was proven to reduce fatigue and stress, and bring amazement, joy, and peace to one's life. No wonder why people spend so much money and travel long distances for whale watching trips and safaris! Watching animals often helped Irina to find the courage and peace to stay true to herself, and brought her serenity and harmony of the natural world, that empowered her to work hard on what she loves to do the most - creating. Irina wishes to bring the same feelings to you through the power of her art. 

Currently, Irina Pushkareva lives and works in Miami, Florida.
