Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Diana Malivani has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.
Diana is an award-winning artist based in Cyprus. Diana was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 12th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.
Diana’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.
Below are Diana’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.
Diana Malivani, who by her training and profession, is a Doctor of Medicine (M.D., Ph.D.), is represented by well-known art galleries in the USA and UK. Her works regularly appear in prestigious exhibitions, are published in international art journals, offered for sale on leading online art market places (notably, on Artsy), and listed in the database of Artprice, the world leader in art market information.
The Artist’s creative journey began at birth: Diana was born on the coast of the Black Sea, bathed in the riotous profusion of the colors of the Caucasus. Her love as a child for fairy tales and pictures later developed into a desire to convey, to those hearing and viewing her work, the great feeling for nature, which enhances her life and the lives of those she loves.
Diana’s paintings reflect her soul, her love for music and nature, for an infinite variety of melodies and sounds, for shades and colors, for all that nature creates: the rustling of wet leaves and the first rays of dawn, the roar of the sea surf and the scent of a flowering meadow, the flight of screeching gulls and dewdrops on a blossoming rose. As she draws flowers and depicts landscapes (the principal themes of her artwork), deals with marine subjects, creates abstract compositions, and transfers music to canvas (one of the Artist’s main Art Projects bears the name «Seeing Music»), Diana strives to share these feelings with others, to share with others a part of her soul.
Diana Malivani is also the author and illustrator of children’s books published in Russian, English, French and German. After many years spent in Russia and France, she now lives with her family in Cyprus.
I am always in the mood to create: this happy inclination and impulse arise spontaneously within me and form an integral part of my life. Nature, for me, is the best source of new ideas. A walk along the Mediterranean coast, contemplation of the high crowns of the eucalyptus and palms against the background of the setting sun, and the boundless southern sky create the illusion that the surrounding world is inexhaustible and limitless: this is what fills me with energy and inspiration.
I believe that it is very important for a human being to be in harmony with self and nature. Only then is it possible to commune with all the beauty of the surrounding world, hear the murmur of the trees and flowers, be in touch with the music of waterfalls and torrential rain, and sense the breath of the sea and passing clouds.
The creative process, this special magical world in which I am submerged, is invariably accompanied by music, which has always occupied an important place in my life. Listening to classical and modern music, I am transported to a special realm where different images and pictures appear, sometimes just bright splashes of color responding to each other, which I then try to transfer to canvas.
My artworks reflect the images evoked in my soul as I listen to music. I believe that painting and music are interconnected by special deep inner ties; having the same foundation as the diverse manifestations of life. With my background in medicine, I am convinced that painting, like music, can heal spiritual wounds and help people find their own life paths.
