RAW Awakening and new Facebook page

On 14 February I showcased eight paintings (6 of them never exhibited before) at RAW Awakening event in Fortitude Valley. Thanks to all my friends who came to support me. I enjoyed the night very much!

Some photos from the event can be found on my newly launched Svetlana’s Art Facebook page. I will be adding more media as it becomes available. Meanwhile, you are invited to visit the page where you can see images of my recent works, including series of acrylic and ink paintings on paper from late 2013. Make sure that you “like” the page if you are interested in receiving more frequent updates from me, as I plan to post images of artwork, announcements and other info there on a regular basis.

Some Prizes

I haven’t done many updates to this site recently as I was pretty busy. Finally I have a good reason to post as I have just won the 3rd Prize in Logan Arts Festival competition with my Spring Time:

Spring Time

I also had an opportunity to conduct 2 free workshops during the festival and, as a result, have been invited to run a course at Logan Art Gallery.

As a matter of fact, I have one more recent achievement to report as I have also been a winner of Marburg Art Show with Images of Marburg I painted specifically for the event!

Re:Invention – it is not too late to visit the exhibition!

Even if you have missed the opening day of my Re:Invention exhibition you can still come to Blueroom Cinebar (151 Baroona Rd, Paddington) during their hours of operation and see the selection of paintings, collages and prints from my last two years. The exhibition will run until early December. Everyone is welcome!

(And if you absolutely cannot be there I will be uploading images of my artwork shown at the exhibition onto my site soon!)

Re:Invention – my second personal exhibition opens on 21 October!

I am happy to invite you to my second personal exhibition that will be officially opened at 3 pm 21 October! The venue is the same as previous year, but the artwork is completely different as I will be only showing my paintings from 2011-2012.

If you’d like to attend the opening please RSVP to Kay, see contact info below. Otherwise you are welcome to browse the exhibition during approximately 6 weeks after opening. Remember that part of the proceedings from the opening goes directly to RSPCA!

Finally – the first prize!

A very proud announcement – I have received the first prize at this month’s RQAS exhibition with my very recent work titled Fruition:


Unlike a number of my previous works this is a non-theme award but the competition in this category is always very serious. So I consider it a very good achievement indeed!

Fauves rule!

I am happy to announce yet another award from RQAS! This time in an exhibition named “Fauves Rule” (and, as the name suggests, themed after French early XX century fauvism) my Portrait of a Girl from a recent series of live paintings was marked with Hodges Creative Award.

Portrait of a Girl Even more, I have been told that the painting has already been sold and is going to New Zealand!
