Born in Belarus in 1966, Lilia Mazurkevich studied at Kiev College of Arts and Design, Ukraine from 1984-87 and later at City & Guilds Art School, London from 1998-99.
Having held countless sell-out solo exhibitions around the globe since then, Lilia is now hailed as one of contemporary art's elite. Her unique style of hyper-realism and subject matter offer a glimpse into a world of intrigue and imagination, often incorporating an incredibly subtle vein of humour, unrivalled in complexity.
Lilia's paintings are held in private and public collections in the United Kingdom, the USA and across Europe, with her reputation continuing to grow year on year.
By 2012, Mazurkevich’s astronomical rise in popularity on the commercial art scene had seen her works accepted into the Phantasten Museum in Vienna, Austria; she had also been shortlisted at the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibition and the BP Portrait Award at The National Portrait Gallery, both in London, UK. The Royal College of Art in London had chosen to display her works and she had been accepted into the Royal Society of Portrait painters & her work was selected as cover artwork for three major theory books published by SAGE Publications.
