Irene Vlassova was born in Siberia, but she spent a large part of her childhood at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. After graduation in Industrial Design and post graduation in Theory of Design, she started her professional career as designer and graphic artist but soon was also active as painter and jewel designer, worked in advertisement and printing arts and became the author of illustrations of many books. She taught Theory of Design at university level. She worked and works also in the field of decorative and applied arts.
During her career she had twenty personal exhibitions and she took part in more than eigty collective exhibitions. Her works are collected by museums and owned by private collectors. She is a member of the Union of Arts of Russia, member of the International Association of Art - IAA AIAP UNESCO. She now lives and works in Belgium.
The main subject of her work is light and air, and their interaction in different forms and phenomena. As illustrator she works more with context than with text because she finds it isn’t necessary to explain the text just read, but it is far more interesting to look for what is beyond the frame.
