The art of Ira Ivanova is defined as a mix between abstract-realism and surrealism. She likes to play with colours, abstract shapes, and spots. She works periodically in various techniques and likes to experiment with different materials and techniques. Her goal is to create personal artwork that consists of endless variations. Many of her paintings have layers of texture while some are painted with more transparent colours, with lots of water and spontaneous brush movements. Her inspiration comes from all of the beauty around her. She strongly believes that we live in a wonderful world full of joy and positivity. She loves the process of painting; it is fun and it brings joy to her life. Through the process of creating she hopes to share the positive energy and joy of life with others. Her work is in private and public collections in Norway, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Dubai, Denmark and other countries.
