Liza was born in 1975 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and has lived in Germany since 1998.
she discovered her love for art very early. Firstly, in Tashkent,, where she studied for more than seven years at the art school and the art academy.
After graduating in Tashkent she moved to Munich to continue her studies and graduated with honours at the Munich academy of arts whilst taking part in several larger projects and exhibitions.
Liza works almost exclusively oil on canvas and is inspired from her photography of her adopted home Munich or on trips that she takes.
The “image of an image” offers the viewer a new perspective, so not only the meaning is seen, but also the visual content of this motif can be perceived.
Furthermore, the painting can become a subject and leads her to deal with different ways of expression. In her works there are photorealistic paintings as well as paintings that contain the emotional-impressionistic style.
In her work, it is not just the imagination and painting skills that are very important, but also the power of observation, keeping a watchful eye on what is important: interesting moments in everyday life, in which people often play the main role.
The things she learned in Uzbekistan together with what she learned at the Art Academy in Munich are reflected in her painting.
In the process, she has developed her own and idiosyncratic style, which combines realistic and stylistic elements as well as the surreal view and painting to a unity.
Thus, through her paintings she manages to invite the viewer into her world and dimensions. Coded meanings of various things are often depicted. This is especially true in multi-figure compositions where the image tells its own story.
Her studio is located at Barschweg 4. in Trudering, not far from the U-/S-train station
