Larisa Lavrova: A Heartbeat in Time

Russian born artist Larisa Lavrova found her journey to becoming an artist to be winding and full of unique experiences. Currently, she works and lives in both Moscow and Toronto, although she is spending the pandemic only in Moscow. Her artwork has been viewed in cities across Russia and is available online. Beginning her journey at the age of two, she views each piece as a chance for new discovery. Canvas and paint are the best way for her to express her feelings and capture a bright, unique experience. In addition to experimenting with techniques on her own, Lavrova has studied art at Art and Industrial College of V.M. Vasnetsov of the Stroganov Moscow State Pedagogical University in Abramtsevo.

Larisa Lavrova: A Heartbeat in Time

Although she works only in oil and acrylic paint on canvas, Lavrova loves to combine different styles and techniques. Her unique style includes abstract, realism, and impressionism. She is constantly looking for inspiration, in the settings and people around her. She often will gather many ideas, but then choose one to focus on to completion. The primary focus for most of Lavrova’s art is nature and people, two things she is passionate about. Each distinctive piece offers a dreamlike expression of the world that delights her audience and enhances the beauty of any space.
