Maria Zheleznova brings amateur painters in UAE on a common platform

Nov 27 2017

Maria Zheleznova is a UAE based artist who brings together a small group of first-time painters for a coffee and painting session. Held twice a week, the two-hour session helps participants immerse themselves in the relaxing world of watercolour paintings.

Maria believes that everyone can paint and she precisely follows the same mantra in all her sessions. Maria says, “For me, Dubai is an endless celebration of dynamic life and opportunities. The weather is warm, and the sea is close, the people are hardworking, lively and they love life. An art escape provides us all a break. An avenue to wind down and live in the moment.”

Maria’s medium of choice is watercolours, and her favourite style is fashion illustrations. Although, in her session, she offers a choice of paintings for attendees to choose which one they want to paint for the class.

“Watercolors offer more room for improvisation. They are bright and unpredictable making them the perfect medium to transmit emotions. When we paint we allow the colours to lead us, and sometimes the final product surprises us all,” she adds.
