Igor turovskiy

Epoxy for Work and Art

In this new class by Igor, you will learn some dimensional and layered techniques for natural granite and marble looks. You will also create art on plexiglass and aluminum and agate using a silicone border.

Igor Turovskiy grew up in Belarus, immersed in natural and architectural beauty. His surrounding influenced his artistic interests at a very young age, and sparked his career as a graphic artist. In 1992, he moved to America and opened his own graphic design studio. Several years later, he has found his niche in the world of abstract art. The pieces are created with mixtures of metallic mica pigments and fluid acrylics. Employing the viscous effects of epoxy resin, the fluid motion of the mixtures is frozen in time. Emotion is conveyed in the pieces through the use of nuanced layers and the organic flow of the resin
