Iryna Kastsova writes abundant floral compositions, summer landscapes and vibrant sea landscapes in the style that she describes as a mixture of impressionism, realism and expressionism. Born and raised in Minsk, Belarus, she began to paint at a young age and continued to study monumental and decorative art at the Belarusian State Academy of Arts. Iryna draws inspiration from the Impressionists and loves spending time in the fresh air, watching the beauty of nature.
For her floral scenes, she uploads photos of the planned flower, and based on “how florists collect flowers for a bouquet, I compose them on canvas.”
“I do not sketch. A picture should appear in my head. Then I quickly throw it on the canvas using a spatula and brushes.”
She works in a small home studio. Her works were published in the Belarusian, German and Polish press, and also exhibited at the Palace of Arts and the Museum of Modern Fine Art in Minsk. She takes part in international and personal exhibitions. Works are in the Museum of Modern Art in Minsk, the embassies of India, Israel, China, Lithuania, as well as in private collections in Belarus, Russia, Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Norway, USA, Czech Republic, Israel, India, China, Canada, Japan.
