Ivan Aflifan is a Russian Painter and illustrator who’s currently based in Canada. His growing acclaim may be attributed to the fact that his work is excellent without succumbing to the mainstream expectations.When asked about his artistic process, he said: “Art is beyond an image of perception and creativity. Art is part of the past, present, future, where one can interpret their own view. Painting allows me as an artist to express my strengths or my vulnerability. Each brushstroke builds up a story, a life and, a passion.” Unsurprisingly, Ivan is the son of the famous Russian painter Anna Razumovskaya.
