Artist Captures Beautiful Flowers in Massive Oil Paintings

Everyone loves to receive a bouquet of fresh flowers, but how often do we pay attention to their smallest details? Ukrainian artist Ira Volkova facilitates the study of delicate petal structures in her massive floral oil paintings. She captures a variety of pastel-colored flowers with masterful precision.

Based in Kyiv, Volkova received formal training in painting at the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kyiv. Since then she has developed her professional practice creating large scale representations of beautiful flowers. These paintings usually feature a couple of flowers dressed in delicate, sweet hues and set against an abstract background that emphasizes their fragility. “Each of my paintings is ideal,” says Volkova.

Volkova also uses flowers in expressive portraits. She combines her expertise in rendering plant life with realistic human figures, placing the flowers in front of the person’s face. This both obscures the sitter’s identity and envelops her in an alluring natural mystique.
