Svetlana Kurmaz, having graduated from the Faculty of Art Graphics of the Kuban State University (Russia), is engaged professionally in paintings since 1992.
She participated in more than 50 exhibitions in Russia, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Luxembourg and the UK (Cambridge).
The aesthetic and philosophical direction of her creative method can be designated as metaphysical realism, where a deep colour is combined with an image-symbol, vibrating between the objective and “thin” worlds.
