Jenny Ivanova – an artist.

My latest creative pursuits are related to the portrait and its role in the 21st century. Striving to expand its boundaries and mine and establish a genuine connection with the viewer, I created a series of personas freed from any external influence who can fully explore their own identity. The idealized world that surrounds them unfolds as if on a theatrical stage. An almost voyeuristic view of a dream or a perfect moment in which you are the most important.
