Marina Richter . From miniature to iconography

There are pieces of art that make me feel uncomfortable somehow, it’s happen to me when the artist’s work is rich in energy and so strong and powerful that strikes me right away when I come close to it. Maybe I’m too sensitive (almost a matter of fact) maybe the artist has so much to give of her nature through the expression that I can feel all the waves that move her artistic flow.
The illustrations of Marina Richter are incredible, when I look at her work I have a strong and mixed feeling of something that’s going to come out from the paper. Her subjects are historical and yet modern, it’s seems to me they are hosted on the canvas where they landed from a different planet and ready to whisper something. I’m not hearing voices of course, but I can bet sensitive people have similar reactions to her illustrations. Born in 1962 in Moscow, illustrator and printmaker Marina Richter (Richterova) graduated from the Art and Craft College in Moscow, where she studied miniature and iconography and book culture and illustration.   In 1983 she moved to Prague, where she has lived ever since. In 1990, she completed studies at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, specialising in illustration and graphic art.
Marina Richter has illustrated several books including a remarkable set of prints illustrating King Lear. She is also well-known for her ex libris prints.
