“Black and white color paintings can also be very attractive”
Lisa is a young and prospective artist, who is in love with creating modern minimalist painting in black and white color. She creates the artworks like a musician and the brush in her hands is like a conductor`s tool. You can literally admire her paintings for hours as after black and white color scheme she hides a plenty of shades, bluish, greenish or pinkish ones.
Early years
Lisa Solo was born in a family of intelligentsia, her father was a math professor at the university and mom was a scientist. They considered Lisa as a future scientist too, and since the early childhood she was taught by home teachers. She loved the science, but not as a scientist but as an artist. All these chemistry molecules looked exciting for a little girl as she considered them as small beautiful pictures in textbooks rather than objects for a deep study.
Actually, the first artworks by Lisa included microorganisms and molecules. Parents disrespected this attitude towards science and were rather strict to her. Lisa recalls that her parents forbade teachers to let her draw a lot during the lessons, that`s why being a child she already had to consume boring scientific dry information without visual support. Still Lisa was rather optimistic person, and parents` strictness didn`t interfere her from making her art late at night under the blanket. She hid her little drawings under the pillow and was waiting for the time when he could leave the house and drop this boring to her science and immense herself in painting process.
School years
Lisa was studying in a public school in Kyiv, she was a smart girl and could literally handle any discipline at school. Moreover, she had private lessons with piano teacher. She had schedule for every day and it was full, no time for personal life at all. But this lasted only until teenager years hit her, and she started her small rebellion.
When she was 14 she used to miss some of the classes at school and just escape to her granny house where she could just paint as much as she wanted. Her granny supported Lisa a lot.
After finishing school Lisa was supposed to enter Engineer studies faculty and even passed all the exams on a high grade, but then she abandoned this idea. Parents were desperate but Lisa realized that it was a high time for her to build her own way. “It was a difficult decision for me, I didn`t want to make my parents upset, as I knew they loved me a lot, just wanted the best future for me, but I couldn`t just waste 4 years of my life at the university I didn`t like”. Lisa decided to take a gap year and take a decision regarding your future. She temporarily moved to her granny and started her search.
University years and adulthood
She knew that the main area of her interest was Art, that`s why with the help of her granny, she got the opportunity to attend private classes with Art teacher who prepared her for entering the university.
She passed the exam and entered Kyiv State Institute of Decorative Arts and Design. M. Boychuk.
“I tried to use these 4 years of study to make up for the lost, as all I did as a school child is learned all the school subjects perfectly. Also, I had a part time job after university to pay for piano classes, as I`m still in love with this instrument and many of my paintings are inspired by piano melodies”.
Lisa confess, that she stopped doing one thing that wouldn’t let her enjoy her life fully. She stopped being perfect in everything.
“That helped me to make my art as you can see it now. It`s an art of imperfection, I mainly use abstract shapes and figures, avoid academism and never ever create my works without piano sounds on the background. Actually, all of my black and white artworks are the piano melodies, which I put on canvas in the way I imagine them, the more shades the paintings have, the more complicated and ear caching song is.”
Lisa moved to Kharkiv when she was 22 and made several successful exhibitions there, and caught the attention of art lovers. “I understand that the paintings I create and sell will most likely hang in someone`s home or office. And I enjoy this feeling that people will have not just a painting on their wall, but a melody, a melody, which is like a sunlight reflected through the prism, reflected through my personal emotions and set on canvas”.
