Artist member since 2019
Irina Zlobina is a Toronto-based painter and printmaker who has had 20 years of creative experience, and numerous exhibitions in Russia and abroad. Her shows had included a group exhibition "New Acquisitions," at The State Russian Museum, Saint Petersburg (2015) and Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (2019). She holds a Master's Degree in Graphic Arts from Moscow State University of Printing Arts (Russia). Irina uses senses and intuition to capture unadulterated honesty on canvas, paper and plate. She courageously engages in the intimate process of facing the unknown without holding back, until the picture and its hidden meaning are completely revealed. Irina draws inspiration from the words of Francis Bacon, who believes the artist must create images as "a concentration of reality and a shorthand of sensation". Irina's works are found in collections at The State Russian Museum, The Tomsk Regional Art Museum, The Surikov Art Museum, as well as private collections in Russia, Germany, France, Great Britain, the USA and Canada. Upon relocating to Toronto, Irina was awarded the Toronto Art Council Newcomer Mentorship Grant in 2018. She presently works out of her home studio in Toronto.
