Luca CurciWhen did you start practicing art and why?

Ina Navahrodskaya – I have always loved painting and drawing, but I actually started practicing art in 2013, maybe because I have just discovered that painting and drawing is what i need to do to be happy.

L. C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?

I. N. -Life is my inspiration. I am feeling more self-confident and professional now. I am ready to show what i do!

L. C.What are you currently working on?

I. N. – I am working on my diploma project, as I will graduate this year. My final work consists of a number of posters, inspired by Jean Giono’s The man who planted treesĀ  and a series of photographs , that illustrate my analysis of human body. It’s all about construction and deconstruction: for me, human body is unique and has a very organic shape, with ideal lines and proportions of parts.

L. C.What was the best advice given to you as an artist?

I. N. – Maybe the best one was “Do what you love, love what you do” and “be honest!”.

L. C.What is art for you?

I. N. – In my opinion art is an attempt to find answers.

L. C.What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

I. N. – I do believe that International ArtExpo Organisation is a great chance to gather people from all over the world together, as well as a unique opportunity, for young artists, to show their own artistic work, giving them the chance to make their first steps in a professional sphere. It is also a great opportunity to learn from others.

I. N. – I do think so and this is the first time i was given the opportunity to participate individually, not like a student-representative of any art school.
