Iryna Komashchuk is a young Ukrainian artist. She graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture (Kyiv, Ukraine) in 2021.

She works with different graphic mediums, but prefers monotyping and complicated watercolors on glazed cardboard.

She actively uses her own life experience in the art. Komashchuk doesn’t invent convoluted theories and concepts. Instead of this, she just enjoys life in all its expressions: from beautiful to terrible ones, from plants to jars in a bathroom. That’s why she draws in a sketchbook a lot and makes routine series or diaries. These visual records tell about the artist and her circle a lot more than she could do. “There are abandoned flowers, which don't belong to apartments, and have been put into the plastic cup from a favorite yogurt. Beer cans and cheap cigarette butts in a green peas can. And sophisticated lace plastic napkins under well-maintained plants. What could be more eloquent?”, Komashchuk said.

Her art generally refers to daily things that picture the life of an ordinary person. 

Iryna Komashchuk lives and works in Kyiv, Ukraine.
