Luba Holland

Biography

Luba Holland, was born in Kazan (Russia) , to a family of teachers and architects. Deeply fascinated by rich diversity of decor, colors and patterns of Russian and Tatar cultures mix, Luba has developed the passion for art from early childhood. Four years of art school helped to sculpt her expression through painting, sculpture, ceramics, crafts and mediums such as watercolors, acrylics and pastels, as well as classical realistic drawing.

She continued her education at the Kazan Academy of Architecture, graduating  in 2000 with a Master of Arts. The work as an interior architect and graphic designer for various companies as well as independent designer followed.

Moving to Germany in 2004 brought her closer to practicing painting, drawing and photography. The greatest satisfaction came from sharing knowledge with her children. They inspired and encouraged her to start working as a drawing and art teacher for children and grown-ups.

From 2006 Luba lives and works as an artist and  a freelance art and drawing teacher  in Munich (Germany).

As much as she enjoys working with different mediums, Luba finds great pleasure and joy in working with acrylic paints. She  loves combining fine elaborated patterns and realistic images with bold abstract techniques, such as liquid painting.

We all have our moments of strength and weakness, moments of beauty, even though quite often we don't think of them as such. In the last few years the most interesting object for Luba  to investigate and to paint became something one cannot  touch, but only feel - the mood, the emotion. Most of the time her children became models for her paintings.

Lots of Luba's paintings have found new homes in private collections in Germany, Russia, England and Australia, as well as in the Museum of Modern Art in South Korea.
