Igor Levashov


Igor Levashov was born outside Moscow in 1964. His early interest in art took him to art classes at the age of seven. Igor’s love of flowers started in 1995 when he was commissioned to produce a collection of tulip paintings to celebrate the 400 years anniversary of the introduction of the tulip in the Netherlands. Thereafter flowers became the constant muse in his paintings.


For Igor, flowers are a fascinating subject. They give an endless variety of shapes, colours and character to many different emotions. From an artistic perspective, his task has always been to find different ways to express a realistic view with a contemporary appeal. His fascination for painting flowers originates from the realisation that every flower is unique. To illustrate its individual beauty became the main objective of his paintings. This makes the viewer feel like they are jumping out of the frame in an explosion of colour.
