Some data on Larisa Pavlova (Sankt Peterburg, Russia) who will visit Lithuania for the first time
Larisa lost her vision at the age of eight year. However, her parents paid a huge attention to her all-round education. Losing her vision did not prevent Larisa from learning to paint and to adopt secrets of arts from Yury Nashivochnikov, the famous Russian artist and talented teacher. In 2005, Larisa Pavlova joined the Union of Russian Artists and was awarded with many honourable awards. In her works, Larisa applies various techniques and unexpected means: she draws with gouache on paper, with pencils on textile or with plasticine on cardboard, forms images on sheets of aluminum foil, polystyrene plates, „Splendorlux“ paper and so on. Frequently, the artist takes part in expositions as well as in international art and education projects for vision-disabled persons.
You are welcome to create and stay at the splendid historic Botanical Garden of the Vilnius University in Kairėnai.
