Krue del Carmen
cant stop looking at your work so magical
Brilliant and Breathtaking...........
I am Iranian artist and i live in Malaysia for education in fine art in master degree. I'd like for my final research study about your artworks, because i found it too interpretive and on the other hand strong technique with strong statement. I live in the country as a multiple culture and religion and i sense differences and similarity of them also i became more familiar with buddhism and silence in their philosophy. I am interested in your painting whit your idea about this peaceful massages. If you agree with my dissertation about your art, please inform me to start write the proposal for university (UM university in KL). Sorry if my English is not very good.
thanks for your kindness and I really admired your being humble even you already have a big name in paintings. you have a wonderful character and amazing artsworks! wow! more masterpiece to come.
heureux de connaitre une exceptionnelle artiste !

What a beautiful ides for a painting. One single dominant color and the rest in low key. I think that I will try monochrome plus one primary color in my next painting.
super great artworks!!
What an awesome tool, to visually create words that can speak to all people. What a privileged responsibility to counteract all the horror that so often confronts the world. The salt and the bright Light...
One of the most powerful examples the world has ever seen, of personal sacrifice, for the liberty of others, was demonstrated in red...
red is also the color of blood, life and death when it escapes, our human condition; red in art isn't like wearing a pair of red shoes, it has a meaning, a power; and red has different shades, it can be use to obtain other colors. It is very pertinent to define its meaning in one's art: thank you Arina.
Brian de Almas
red-cultural understanding in our country is a courage ..
Arina, your work is very pluriartistic! ;) So great performance!
I find you are very inspirational and your art is like your beautiful self..
I`m drawing and painting, and it is Artists like yourself that inspire me to try different things, I will follow your
work, thank you again, and thanks for sharing
I love your work ..it's so big and bold....good to see so many people doing figurative work...most of the schools here in England don't teach or even support it...
je suis étonnée et fascinée par votre créativité et votre sens artistique ....
Wonderful work !
Arina you start with and give inspiration to us. your performance wtih red is impressive.
Your spirit and presence lives in your work ....i am grateful to be a friend of yours as you have so much to give and share---my only wish is that i can give something back to you one day!

Querida Arina, en cualquier lengua que sea, hoy ,la elegida, todas son válidas para mandarte un único mensaje...·muy feliz cumpleaños", que la vida te encuentre bailando, cantando, riendo, y conectada, hoy más que nunca con la inspiración y la sensibilidad que conlleva tua arte!!!Un abrazo.
Thanks Arina for sharing this Excellent work with us !
Your color choice give such a rich dimension !!
Jelena Kodzo Vujanic
For some unknown reason it is very close to me…thank you for making this esoterically painted work....
love your style of painting, I now hope to see more of your work , I hope you dont mind, but I am going to try and do a painting in your style, love the monochrome with a vivid color , it looks awesome, thanks for sharing
evrything u do....... alwayz great, nice, beautiful... 3 colors but......so amazing, arina!
I also have a consuming interest in the makeup of the human, the body, the soul and the spiritual, the trinity…and how one can consciously walk in that reality, and so become the full expression of what is lying dormant in most of society…So your Trinity theme is further inspiration…may you discover in full what you are predestined to contribute to the lives of others...
Thanks for that, I really think that what you do is worthy of admiration, I saw your work and think you're a great artist, thanks for doing what you do
you have such clarity l dont know how you do such beautiful paintings :)
Arina these works are powerful,masterful and absolutely beautiful!I love red and all that it symbolizes...love,life,passion,beauty and power! Thank you!
Dear Arina, your words ("Art is such a powerful tool to bring the Beauty to the World") are really piece of poems... Thanks! Great job!
… absolutely powerful images. I see it as such a positive statement for the acknowledgement of women…there is no timidity…"we have a place and a voice that is equal to all..." Would love to know of any future work...
Thank you Arina. My humble opinion, you're 100% right - art is not only beauty, through art the world is being saved.
Thanks thanks a lot, Arina!! I'm grateful for your great mind: meeting a soul like your soul is a Life's gift…
The power of your paintings raises a new Metaphysics! I love them so much…
I' m also thinking of the "Alchemical opus": 3 stages, the "nigredo" (or blackness), the albedo (whiteness), and the rubedo (redness). Destruction, purification, sublimation. To translate the soul is the Philosopher's Stone... What do u think about?
Complimenti per i tuoi lavori.
Sei una grande artista e meriti un grande successo
fabulius... for ever... and you level spirit !
Always a special treat when your beautiful art pops up on my home page...you and I share similar views about the world...people. You manifest it through your incredible artwork...mine manifests through my desire to educate all culture groups to hold fast to their beginnings as they become acculturated to our country...thank you...

Ana Maria Gomez Vega
Your work is excellent. really good, beautiful, congratulations!!
...TECHNIC AND TALENT...SUPER !!!
Beautifull, Strong, Present, Now...Well Done
Arina...about 7 years ago I realized I hardly ever
used much red in my work...except to modulate or mix with other color. It was almost as though I was "afraid" of the color. To counter that, I did a "Red Series" of works in 2006, 2007 that ...celebrated the color red in all it's various nuance and temperatures. It's such a "loaded" color. Some associate it with blood, death, rage..others see passion, love, depth of emotion...I wound up doing about 20 paintings where "red" was the star. Now red has become an important component in my works. You, on the other hand, celebrate the color almost exclusively. Against the grisaille faces, the red sings out powerfully....as it does here against all the "neutrals". I enjoy your work. This photo is beautifully composed, brilliant use of single-point perspective,...lyrical and almost disturbing at the same time. It's pretty hard to ignore red! :)
Arina,I just adore your tryptich in black and white and red...Ingenious!
i found it on web . It just hit me fondly. there is so much of you in these Artworks!!!
Dear Arina, thank you for the paintings you make plus the concepts you use.
I'm a amateur painter, but you are a very good role-model, plus I think of you as a beautiful person (and I mean the whole package!!! I'm not kissing up, it's just the simple truth).
So happy to discover your works, your way of thinking and so on and so on…
lindo demais seu trabalho, parabéns!!! Amazing
may all gods bless us with a red world and more people like yourself with and enlightened soul.
i love black and white film its rustic and shows the purity and earthiness of and object in its truest form
excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wonderful ...wonderful ...wonderful…perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Estoy contigo,el rojo es un color lleno de grandes pasiones y emociones
Susana Maria Rosende
Your work is incredibly beautiful.
Interesting!! Uv got a very bold expression in Deep Red. Esp d simplistic combination of a sharp contrasting opposite. Its a brilliant n striking piece dat,ll dominate any space. I should see dis exhibition at saatchi gallery.
Dear Arina,The world seems to have the potential to be a much better place when intelligent, inspired and creative minds are connected.
I hold that inspired minds and creative souls should be connected. It is an arduous journey from cradle to grave, best shared with kindred spirits. With art as my international language, I hope that my imagination may impart something of worth and you enjoy what you find here. It means a great deal to me that you have found me worthy of inclusion in your circle of friends.
dear Arina,I m very glad to meet a person like you, who is a master in painting, and she spent her time, to explain for a person like me ,,,,thats really great! Im from Persia, II live in Germany from 2002,my english isnt very good, so,Im sorry about it,I hope to visit your paintings exhibition one day ,thanks for so many ...information, I wish you nice time, the world needs positive people like you.
Thanks for everything (your mail, new website providing and make me as a friend) I am too much proud for that coz. I have to learn lot of things from such type of experience people as like you. I am always thirsty to introducing experience full person.
Your work is stunningly academic yet ethereal or should I say
topical in nature.
not only your art is beautiful your painting, but also your person who is very charismatic and full of light. congratulations on everything.
Wow, I hadn't realised these paintings were on this scale, it gives even more presence to such beautiful and original work.
your painting is perfect
First of all I have seen in real your distinctive self portraits with those red turbans, and they left me without breath...
Now I have by chance read your biography at your website and it really touched me. I am a Mexican painter who recently moved to London and you have inspired me. Thank you Arina...
The red is so beautiful and strong. It seems to give balance to the ethereal feeling it evokes in me. The overlapping tucks and gatherings that envelop you are a favorite image of mine. I go out of my way to find eternal beauty and redemption in all things and there is something so amazing about swirls and spirals. They are forever, and forever is a long time to get it right. Thank you so much for sharing your art ...
I love how you painted the portrait. The red linen scarf against the face, hands and arms are striking. The movement of just the arms and head on each panel carry you through each panel. The compositions are very Beautiful and stunning. Your work is incredible.
seriously incredible and captivating
""Beauty Will Save the World"....and your work is beautiful!
ARINA, UR WORKS LEAVE ME TONGUE-TIED.. THEY'RE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND NOT EASY 2 DEFINE... SIMPLY BREATH-TAKING.
Any time I can help spread the beauty in the world and try to not dwell on the ugly is alright with me.....and by ugly I do not mean the appearance of uglyalone, but the horrors of the world that touch each and every one of us at one time or another-some of us more that anyone should have to endure...I thank you for the "Beauty Movement"!!!!!”
I am so excited to share your work with my friends! your photos are beautiful and I am so honored to be a part of being able to "bring beauty to the world - to save it" thank you!"
Marvellous art work Arina....red is so vigorous, vibrating, so rich, so strong, just as life is, only not everyone can deal with it and come out clean...
Its so unique and creative ... good choice of colors too .. black & white pic with bold red color .. stupendous
This is a great job as you normally do. And I really like the size of your pictures. Your pictures are perfect. I take off my hat...
wow, great talent Arina and you use it wisely
Maren Smith Phillips
what a great technique !!!
this series makes me feel pride in being a strong woman.
Arina, i love ur artwork, powerful and very feminine too .
I love your works, what a wonderful feeling to see your paintings Arina, Breath taking.
Doris Jean Silva
I love your paintings and your own take on art. The woman with the red scarf has a deeper meaning to me from my past.
The red scarf on the woman represents all the women who wore scarfs on their heads to hide their baldness. The red in particular represents suffering and dignity. This could apply to the wars today as well. As a soldier what red means to them.
I read your biography. Sometimes we need pain to set us in a new direction and release the intense emotions inside us. Pain makes great artists as does happiness.
Mariaeliana Morales Mitallerdepintura
your paintings are outstanding!
Dana Marie, Artist
Beautifully powerful works!
utterly striking, to say the least.
Unconditionally gorgeous, awe-inspiring, and glamorous!
Goosebumps! I just love this series...and your words as well.
David M Stallings
One can see all around a cult of ugliness. The decent of man begins when he denies God. People then deny Beauty. Next, will be Love. Then, finally, humanity will lose Hope. Beauty is so much more important than many realize. Not only does beauty have the power to save the world, the degradation and denial of it will bring hellishness. I'm glad to know that there are still folks out there who understand the importance of Beauty.
Your work is so different and original. Its really very good !
…now I am seeing red everywhere, its a little scary :)
I think you bring the Beaty in the world, Arina!
thank you Arina ,you are very special!
Really stunning work!
I had the opportunity to view your art and your bio. I am humbled. Ct
Amazing talent you have, Arina.
The size of paintings are another element I like, only I have to imagine it, and when I do, it strikes! Not just red and beautiful, but intelligent too.
Adolfo Art Astudillo

You are a talented artist, Great work!
Manuel Faliero Lassi
red objects in London...an elegant idea of an Artist who transcends the photographic moment ... congratulations
very diffrent kind of works...
THE COLOR RED HAS MANY MEANINGS,---IN PRISONS THEY'VE FOUND THAT TO PAINT WALLS IN RED CREATES VIOLENT RAGES AND EMOTIONAL OUTREAKS,WHEREAS PALE SHADES OF GREEN AND BLUES CREATE ATMOSPHERES OF CALM AND PEACE. IN ANY EVENT I USE IT TO CREATE EXCITEMENT IN MY WORKS AND YOU USE IT EXCEEDINGLY WELL,BRAVO
THE SKETCHES ARE DELIGHTFUL, BRAVO
Ridha Art Ridha
Excellent works !!
Of course, Arina's loves is Art With Huge A! ;)
Arina,,,,I last had a chat with u at ur show @Chelsea ur fantastic work has remained vivid with me ever since, in fact I come across an art comp just the other day and I thought of u and ur version of the girl with pear earring.
You are an inspiration to me as an artist.
Scorpio and red is a harmonious equation. Red in chakras is found in the kalachakra, the seat of the kundalini energy, which, according to Chi Gong masters, brings healing, moves objects, start fires.
Marvin Delacruz Santos
Superb works, Arina! Very interesting series and avant-garde...
Tom Adrian Hoffman
I love the contrast of red to silver - it adds so much character & emphasizes the detail in her face - beautiful!
