Animalize by Ekaterina Antonova
Ekaterina Antonova has dedicated her life to expression through Art; ”When I paint, I feel purpose, I feel alive” she reveals. And this is what she wishes her art to transmit to the observer. Having studied across the globe, and mastered a panoply of traditional as well as modern techniques, she is one of Montreal’s most promising emerging artists.
Her paintbrush writes in universal language, allowing her to express her view of the world. A world full of love, sprinkled with pieces of heaven found in the quietest moments of a day.
She started her art journey formally at the School of Fine Arts in Yaroslavl, Russia, where she completed a rigorous fine arts program. With a solid knowledge of skills and techniques, she went on to the study at the Museum of Tel-Aviv, Israel. Here, she was able to experiment with different shapes, forms; while starting to develop her own style of painting. After three years in Israel, she moved to Montreal, where she currently resides. At the School of Visual Arts, she took master portrait classes where she developed a passion for capturing the human gaze.
As an animal advocate, she further noticed the similarities between animal and human eyes. What started as one painting of the majestic lion became the subject one of her many new muses: wildlife animals.
The “Animalize” collection features colorful majestic animals with eyes that inspire. To animalize means to arouse sensuality found in nature. By connecting with these animals we hope you experience something intimate, discover a close affinity with them and your own animal nature.
Animals being at the center of this event, as well as the artist’s muse, a portion of the proceeds from the exhibit will be donated to Animal Ethics
We hope to see you exciting event and hopefully…Animalize you.
