Iva Gueorguieva on Thursday!

Los Angeles based painter Iva Gueorguieva will speak in the series on Thursday, April 26.  Here is an article and a review that will give you a sense of her painting practice.  Please note, students enrolled in ART 485 are assigned an additional reading on painting that will be circulated over email!


  1. Her works that I viewed are visually compelling, they are pleasing images.

    1. I agree with you Lolita, her paintings are fun to look at and use wonderful warm and rich colors, very pleasing to the eyes.

  2. I really like her work. There just seems like so much going on with each piece, and there is so much movement. At first glance they can seem a little chaotic but after a closer look you can see how clean the work is. Great stuff!

  3. Iva's work is beautiful and at times even appears so full of life that it could be described as turbulent. The influence of the Italian Futurists is evident in her work, but in a very modern way. Her work speaks volumes of her history and life, as she and her family had to leave their formerly successful and safe lives in Bulgaria in order to find a better life elsewhere. I am excited to see more of her work!
