|Born in 1969 in the
Kyrgyz Republic, Lena Kazantseva first developed her artistic vision at the Kyrgyz State
Art College. She continued her education at the Easel Drawing Faculty of the Krasnoyarsk
State Institute of Art in Russia. Upon graduation, Lena returned to her native Bishkek to
practice her art.
In addition to drawing,
Lena is also interested in etching and painting and has a fondness for experimenting with
texture, form, and color. According to Lena, emotions are the dominant feature of art
because they allow both creator and audience to personally experience it. In addition, she
believes that fine drawing comes not from how one draws technically, but rather how one
views and interprets the world, with subtlety offering more than blatancy.
