Polina Dobrotina is a London-based contemporary impressionist. In her work, she translates complex moods and feelings into visceral expressions on canvas. Originally from Russia, Polina studied Impressionism and Academic Painting, Drawing and Art Theory at the University of Rouen in Normandy, France. The birthplace of impressionism had a profound impact on her work and she explored the works of Monet, Degas and Sisley, who influenced the forming of her own creative language.
Taking inspiration from the vibrant beauty of nature, Polina’s focus is on expressing raw emotions through abstract compositions where the light, colour and texture play the lead role.
Polina Dobrotina is an exhibited and award-winning, emerging artist. She was awarded the first prize at the Genesis Art Competition 2019 and the Live Drawing Competition at Art Number 23. She was shortlisted and participated in the Contemporary Painting Prize 2019, Mayfair London and the Mall Galleries Royal Art Prize 2020.
She has participated in a number of group shows in the UK, US, Russia, Slovakia and Mexico and held her first solo show in the Red Partnership Gallery in 2019. Her artworks are held in galleries, corporate offices and private collections in London and overseas.
