Lena Art is a model, actress, illustrator, journalist and an art addict! She don’t like what was thought up by others.
I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;
How did you fall in love with modeling?
Everything has begun when I was 12 years old. It was improbable for the little girl. It was the dream.
How were you discovered?
Parents have taken me to model school. And in two weeks I have begun to work.
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
More I like video projects. The latest role is a killer in Dolce Gabanna style, under the leadership of the music video director Alan Badoyev.
How would you define your personal style?
It is only my style. I don’t try even to resemble the standard canons a little at all. I don’t love only what was thought up by others.
Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?
I grew in one of the Russian cities. After school I have gone to Tokyo, then I have lived years in Spain. My style includes luxury of the Russian culture because in Russia attach great value to style. And also combines the European simplicity.
Who is your style icon and why?
I don’t have any icons. It seems to me, there are too many beautiful and stylish people to follow. I don’t have any example only one. And combining different styles – it is possible to create something special.
Who is your favorite photographer and why?
I can’t tell the names…. I like Yury Treskov, thanks to his sensualism. Tremendous portraits of Annie Leibovitz. Ancestor of fashion -photos Stephen Maisel. I am afraid that I can long describe the authors loved by me, as I like absolutely different styles and the directions.
What advice would you give to aspiring models out there?
It is necessary to believe very strongly in himself and to forget about laziness. All is possible. And it is very dangerous not to move forward.
Do you edit your own photos? If yes, which programs do you use?
Yes. Photoshop and if it at phone, maybe VSCO.
