| The art of Lala Ragimov is inspired by the
and sensuality of her subjects that range from great opera voices to
nudes and fruit.
The artist was born in Moscow. In childhood she studied art from the works of great painters in museums and from books, as well as from nature. Through art school and after graduating with the Master of Fine Arts degree from California State University Long Beach she has continually researched the techniques of the painters of Flemish Baroque and Venetian Renaissance through conservation journals and restoration papers. She is dedicated to using those techniques, materials and ideals in her work.
Another passion of the artist from childhood has been biology. Her admiration of that science and the love of the natural world continues inspiring the creation of many botanical, ornithological, medical, and other scientific illustrations.
