Dinara Mirtalipova : Easter Eggs

For: Dinara Mirtalipova

Culture Trip just wrote a beautiful article about Dinara Mirtalipova's Easter eggs. 

Here's a quick snippet of the article

Culture Trip: When did you start painting eggs?

Dinara Mirtalipova: Painting eggs for Easter is a family tradition, started by my grandma Lilia. She celebrated Easter and baked Easter bread called kulich (кулич). As a child I loved to watch her doing it and I loved to help with dying eggs. After she passed away, I continued to decorate eggs for Easter year after year and now it’s become my tradition.

CT: Do particular places inspire your work?

DM: I know it sounds too obvious, but inspiration hides everywhere. I love taking nature walks with my daughter, I love listening to ethnic music, taking trips to museums or libraries, I love collecting fabric, ethnic dolls and coins. So it’s hard to name one destination, I think it depends on what you’re looking for.
