Meet Inna Bugeja, An amazing artist who uses glass as the object to project her imagination and convert it into something really amazing & breath-taking.
We recently caught up with Inna for a discussion where she discusses her life, her inspiration, her motivation, her love for glass painting and much more.
Nojoto Team: Hi Inna, describe yourself. Imagine writing a story on Nojoto.
Inna: I was born in Ukraine in 1979 and developed an early interest in art. Art has always been a part of my life.
Since I was 7, I went to different type of schools – arts, music (playing guitar), singing, dancing, and drawing. And I realized at age 10 that most of all, what I like is to draw.
I have been studying painting in an art school of Ukraine since last 5 years.
In school, I studied different techniques of drawing and have tested many materials that can be used for painting. Few which I tested are: canvas, ceramic, wood, iron and glass. And of course my love and my favorite is glass.
Nojoto Team: From where did you get the inspiration for drawing? What motivated you? — Any person or a situation in particular?
Inna: After my marriage in Malta and the birth of my child, I didn't had enough time to do my art. I have a
wonderful family, the best husband, a lovely baby. I had a happy family life, until I realized that I did not
seem to have enough of something inside of me.
All I had was good, but I felt as if my soul was empty. I realized that I need to grow creatively – and need to
listen beautiful music, should start reading interesting books, and meet creative people.
Years later, when my daughter grew up - I felt that I need to pick up my art on glass.
Nojoto Team: How did your parents, friends, school, hometown influence your passion for your art?
Inna: My husband always support me and encourage me my artwork. Sometimes when I start painting on glass, I just can't stop. I can paint for 16 hours without a break. It looks like I am in another dimension. He understands that my art is really important for me, so he helps me and motivates me to improve.
Nojoto Team: How do you take out time to follow your passion?
Inna: Night is my time. I can focus & paint at night because it is all quiet, and everyone in my family is also asleep, so that’s the time when I am in creative mood and follow my passion of painting on glass.
Nojoto Team: Why did you picked up Glass Painting only and not anything else?
Inna: I understood that glass is the material on which I want to paint, because Glass as a material can be worked in so many ways. Its ability to transmit and reflect light adds another layer of intrigue and meaning to the art. There is no other material with gives so many options to the artist.
I am using 3 different types of paints - transparent, opaque and pearl colours which are makes light effects.
Nojoto Team: What is the most fulfilling thing when you share your artwork with others?
Inna: I really appreciate when other talented people comment on my art. I love to hear both good and bad comments, and that's how I can learn and improve next time.
Nojoto Team: How do you go about creating your art — starting from thinking about it — to imagining about it — to actually doing it? Describe the creative process, which you take generally?
Inna: I love Night, Full Moon, Magic... I turn on relaxing music. In that moment I am in a Creative Mood and I ready to create my art.
Nojoto Team: What types of art you have experimented with?
Inna: Long time ago I tried to paint on a canvas. But the glass painting and painting on canvas are a different feelings. Glass painting is very slow work and it is exactly for me because I like when it takes time, so that I can indulge in to it.
Nojoto Team: What is your most favorite style of art?
Inna: My favorite is to mix the colors between each other.
Transparent with opaque, transparent with pearl or opaque with pearl.
With all these actions I can make different light effects such as - shadow, drop of water, 3D effect etc.
Nojoto Team: Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Inna: I cannot exactly say if I am an extrovert or an introvert. When I am in my creative mood and I painting - I am an introvert. It is one side of me.
And another half is extrovert - I like meet new people. I love my Life which is full all different colours. We create our Life that is why most of my art are full of bright colours.
Nojoto Team: What is the most interesting comment/feedback you have got about your art and from whom?
Inna: One time I showed my painting called "Through the Rain" to an Art Teacher and asked for her advice.
She said it is incredible - how I got the effect of a wet road, glowing windows and the painted flowers with the effect of 3d and then she asked me to show some more of my techniques of the glass painting.
Nojoto Team: If you could do one thing for the World, what would it be?
Inna: I would like to paint the world in bright colors.
Nojoto Team: What is “your” favorite work till now?
Inna: My Favorite work till now Glass Painting called "Life and Soul". This painting means a lot to me. This is my soul, my spirit, my creative mood...
Nojoto Team: — If given 1 million dollars, what you want to do?
Inna: We all have an inner world that is quite distinct from the outer world. It is the world we meet when we have an emotional reaction, an idea, or close our eyes and live in our fantasies, imagination or dreams.
Rich person stops thinking about his inner world. That person thinking just about money. So I afraid to have a lot of money because I afraid to lose myself. What can I do with 1 million dollars is to give to person who is more competent in this matter.
Nojoto Team: What do you love about Nojoto? And why do you like it?
Inna: Why I love "Nojoto"? Because "Nojoto" loves me ;)
I feel that I am on it since the beginning and now it feel looks like a big family who cares about each other and I feel like I'm part of this friendly, positive, caring family.
There are a lot of talented people from whom I can learn something new and interesting. We are so far from each other, but through "Nojoto" we get a little closer.
It's interesting to know the world, another world without leaving home just by using Interest Based Social Network called "Nojoto".
Nojoto Team: What is your message for other people who are young and have a passion for a particular interest?
Inna: Never give up! If you have a dream then follow it. Setting goals is important for reaching your dreams. Successful people set goals and reach them step by step.
Team Nojoto: “Inna joined Nojoto’s family in very early days when we just started. She has the most amazing profile on Nojoto. She used “Collection feature” of Nojoto, in the way we thought not many people might understand.
She has 6 beautiful collections in Traditional Arts – where each collection has a different life of its own – and has a different dimension. Words are not enough, to understand – you will have to check out her profile on Nojoto.
1. Glass Painting by IB
2. Stained Glass Effect Painting
3. Step by Step Glass Painting
4. Bench – On Glass Details
5. Glass – Clock in details
6. Colorful spring
Because we now that she has amazing taste in Music, we would love to see that side of Inna too and wish to see her Music Collection on Nojoto.
Moreover, after seeing video of her art gallery on Nojoto, someday I really want to visit her Gallery and see her amazing artworks.
We wish Inna’s artwork inspires millions of people to follow their passion, their interest.”
