The Seductive Paintings of Ivan Alifan

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Russian painter Ivan Alifan paints seductive portraits, subtly allowing us into the intimate aspects of his characters’ lives. His works range from metaphorical portrayals of sensuality — as in the dramatic portraits of a woman with white paint cascading down her face — to quiet looks into the introspective moments of Ophelia-like beauties. Alifan paints with expressionistic strokes, creating dramatic and sometimes ghostly lighting that encapsulates a sense of mystery. Take a look at some of Ivan Alifan’s paintings below.
