Russia American artist, Igor Melnivok, challenges traditional associations with portraiture through his haunting paintings of emotionally ambiguous children isolated on a dark background. Although he often bases his paintings on children he knows, he also relies old photographs as well as memories and dreams for details. He states that his main objective is not to record a likeness but rather to suggest the childlike innocence and vulnerability we once possessed.
