Irina Velman

Irina Velman lives and works in Waitakere, West Auckland, where the nature is powerful and beautiful, art community is flourishing, and it’s impossible to run out of inspiration.

Irina’s expressionist style explores her interest in shapes, lines and colours of nature combined with emotional responses and memories. She uses both traditional and experimental painting techniques. Combining acrylic paints with different polymers and resin, Irina creates unique texture and organic earthy feeling. In addition to original paintings, Irina loves designing. Her art can be found printed on a wide range of giftware produced by New Zealand and overseas companies. She sees the world in a beautiful, mysterious way, and believes in the healing power of art.
