Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Kseniya Lia –
Art is part of my life, a way of communicating with the inner world of people.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
KL –
It can be anything but I get the main energy from love, nature, and music.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
KL –
I graduated from two art schools and a university. Most of all I was influenced by the school of sacral art, icon painting.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
KL –
Now the understanding of who an artist is it’s blurry, and just being a good artist is not enough. It is not easy especially when you combine a lot of other things in your life besides creativity.

LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
KL –
Of course. We are changing, everything that surrounds us in one way or another affects us. Now, for example, watercolor is close to my self-expression. I used to pay more attention to details, now I focus on feeling and conveying an idea to work with the help of color and light. In my last works, you rarely find black and dark tones.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
KL –
It’s great. It inspired me to write another series of works on this topic.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
KL –
Yes, the idea is reflected in my works, the alchemical process. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality.

Yes, of course. It is a great opportunity for many artists.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
KL –
Yes, I am thankful for my experience with Itsliquid Group.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
