ABOUT GALINA AGERD
Galina Agerd was born in Kazakhstan to a creative family. Agerd’s father was a nationally recognized architect, and he trained his daughter to sketch at an early age. As a young adult, Agerd moved to Moscow, where she earned a degree in world economy at Moscow State University. Later, she relocated to London to obtain a master’s degree in marketing at Regents University and an MBA at Webster University.
With this strong educational background, she launched a successful career in the world of global finance for six years. After attaining success in the business world, she began to search inside and discovered a passion to create. Increasingly, she found that material success left her feeling empty; she lacked a sense of fulfilment and inner peace.
She decided to embark on a personal journey, studying subjects ranging from psychology to the great mystics, and in this way she rediscovered her passion for art. She began to study painting under various mentors and completed an art course at Christie’s, learning about recent trends in the art industry. Taking inspiration from the likes of Kandinsky and Miró, she experimented endlessly, taking special care to understand the full capabilities of the latest paints and materials. She collected insights from her years of travel, incorporating the multitude of styles and methods she had observed across various cultures.
Eventually, Agerd set aside her career in finance to embrace her calling as an artist. After many years of study, she had amassed a great deal of knowledge that she felt she needed to share with the world through her art. She emerged with the Flow method — the product of a personal struggle to rediscover the wisdom of meditative silence and wholeness. Her work represents the emergence of visions from our collective well of hopes and wisdom. While our material culture insists that the highest good is the newest purchase, with the emphasis always on attaining perfection and impressing others, Agerd’s painting reminds us that the highest good is carried inside of us, if we only remember to look.
