About the artist Iryna Zhorushkina

Automatic translation

I was born on October 29, 1992 in a small village in the Dnepropetrovsk region, Ukraine. My mother is a civil servant, my father is a miner. The difficult years after the collapse of the USSR forced my parents to go into debt in order to have enough for food and life. Since 2003, I attended classes at an art school, but in 2007 I dropped out due to constant criticism from teachers. After that, I didn’t draw at all for 2 years. She graduated from a local school in 2009. Preparing for the exams, I began to draw again - these were portraits of celebrities and acquaintances from their photographs. I entered the technical university for an economic specialty in Dnepropetrovsk. She graduated in 2014 and received a diploma with honors. During this period, I drew a little, but had no inspiration due to constant criticism and ridicule from friends, relatives, viewers from social networks. My works were called mediocre (every child will draw better, etc.). Having a higher economic education, but having no connections, I was forced to return to my city, where I lived and worked until the summer of 2018. At this time, I actually did not draw, I only worked in government agencies and in the supply of a large enterprise. I was a naive and stupid child. In the summer of 2018 she moved to Odessa. Here I met many people, each of whom changed my life and perception of life. In 2020, I tried to start painting again. At the end of 2021, I started painting with ink. To this day, my creative path continues
