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. Agerd moved to Moscow where she got a degree in World Economy at Moscow State University. Then she moved to London and got Master’s degree in Marketing at Regents University. Followed by MBA at Webster University, London. 

With this education, she launched a successful career in the world of global finance for six years. After reaching great heights of success in the business world, she searched inside and discovered a passion to create. But despite this, she found material success empty.

 

Agerd embarked on a personal journey studying subjects from psychology to the great mystics, and she rediscovered her passion for art. She began studying painting under mentors and even completed an art course at Christie’s — learning about recent trends in the industry. Taking inspiration from the likes of Rothko and Kandinsky, 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 seen in various cultures.

Agerd set aside her career in finance, embracing her calling as an artist. After long years of intense dedication, she emerged with the Flow method — the product of a personal struggle to rediscover the wisdom of meditative silence and wholeness. Her work is 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, Agerd’s painting reminds us that the highest good is carried inside of us, if we only remember to look.
