Nina’s second inspiration is her “MUZ” (as she calls he). He is also the protagonist of the painting “Pair of the World”, one of my biggest and most expensive works to date. It’s a big triple challenge: mixing multidimensional bionics, making portraits of people and painting on wood.
“In addition to my team that helps me with all technical work, I have the most important trusted and responsible person who is assigned the honorable and important task of being autor of the titles of all my works. Sometimes his interpretations are quite unexpected even for me,” Nina admits.
