Polina Dobrotina is an award-winning contemporary impressionist and abstract artist. Whilst her technique is modern and expressive, it’s relatable to our past, present and future. She’s able to take something real but extend that reality and take it somewhere beyond into a dream-like state of colour, shade, light and texture, allowing enough room for the observer to decide and own what they see and how it makes them feel. – There is an air of magic that brings hope and colour that everybody needs to see.
Originally from Russia, Polina studied Impressionism and Academic Painting, Drawing and Art Theory at the University of Rouen in Normandy, France. The birthplace of impressionism had a profound impact on her perception of colour and light. She explored the works of Monet, Degas and Sisley, who influenced the forming of her own creative language.
Taking inspiration from the vibrant beauty of nature, Polina’s focus is on expressing her point of view through abstract compositions where the light, colour and texture play a leading role.
