My name is Ivan Balyasnikov. I'm a professional painter. I was born and raised in Evpatoria / Crimea, I have graduated from a children's art school, an art school, and then the Kharkov Academy of Design and Arts. Now I write pictures and work in Krasnodar and other cities of Russia.
I work in the styles of Impressionism, Expressionism, Fauvism, Post-Impressionism, Art Nouveau and I try to find my own unique style.
I am really inspired by art and painting, paints, canvas and brushes. I want to convey my love to the world, sincerity and depth through pictures, touching their souls.
I often go to an open air, travel, get inspired, enjoy life. It fills me and gives me the motivation to create every day, completely devoting myself to what I love.
