Igor Sava

    

Igor Sava was born May 16, 1973 in Kotovsk, a small town in Moldova. In 1993 he attended the School of Arts “Ilya Repin” in Chisinau, the current capital of the Republic of Moldova. In 1999, after graduating in Graphic Design at the University of Timisoara, he moved to Rome. He attended the School of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts, now he primarily lives and works in Rome participating regularly in solo and group exhibitions. Dalvaro Art feel immensely privileged that Igor has become a regular visitor to our venue.

Igor Sava is considered one of the best watercolourists of the present time. He participates in, and gives lectures and workshops in some of the world’s most respected central classes. Igor Sava paints with great ease; his paintings of landscapes flow from his brush as if by magic, and his paintings of nude figures are admired by a large number of followers. Igor has been awarded in several prestigious events and is frequently invited to perform demonstrations of his watercolour techniques around the world.

This will be Igor’s fourth visit to Dalvaro, his previous painting holidays at Dalvaro have been filled quite quickly, therefore early booking is advisable. 

This workshop is suited to the more advanced student who is familiar with and comfortable with the basic uses of watercolour paints and techniques and is not intimidated by plein air painting in busy thoroughfares, but wishes to advance their understanding even further with one of the present day masters of watercolour.

Arrival day Sunday 9th September, with transfers from Alicante airport included. 

 
 

Special offer with this workshop. A rare opportunity to work with Ekaterina and Igor Sava in the same holiday. Combine two weeks of exceptional highly talented art tutors. More details....
