Elena Gubanova / Ivan Govorkov

Back

Artists Elena Gubanova (b. 1960, Ulyanovsk, USSR) and Ivan Govorkov (b. 1949, Leningrad, USSR) work together since 1990, implementing their creative tasks in the direction of abstract art. 


The works by Elena Gubanova are distinguished by dynamic alloy of rich textures, different materials, complex volumes and unusual colors. Color options she uses easily and freely. This complex combination of saturated color sound and complete lack colors that replace the shades and light. 


Ivan Govorkov is the artist of pronounced intellectual type, prone to paradoxes. He owns excellent variety of materials and technical capabilities. Having mastered the visual languages of classic and contemporary, he is just like playing on the borders are incompatible.
