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.

KL –
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?
KL –
ITSLIQUID is a web-based communication platform. Among them are architects, designers, artists, collectors, art critics, curators, dealers, and other personalities of the International art, architecture and design world. It is an honour to be part of this all.
