Dive Deep into Art

At the heart of our experience lies the artistry of Larysa Malsagova, a gifted painter whose work encapsulates the soul of the Caribbean. Born into a family of musicians, her early exposure to the arts profoundly influenced her creative journey. Larysa's paintings burst with color, vividly portraying the intricate details of carnival costumes, feathers, and the rich tapestry of Caribbean culture. She also delves into the realms of Caribbean folklore, capturing the essence of age-old stories through her art.

 

Using oil paint and employing specific techniques, Larysa brings these vibrant tales to life, inviting you to immerse yourself in the captivating narratives of the Caribbean. Within the sanctuary of her art gallery in "We Culture," you'll witness not just images but stories, each stroke narrating a unique chapter of the islands' spirited life.
