Liivia Leškin is known and recognized primarily as a branded fashion designer. Born in 1956, graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 1980 as a fashion designer, member of the Estonian Artists’ Union since 1989, and a founding member of the art group ON Grupp. From 1987 to 1995, she was a lecturer and professor of fashion design at the Livonian Academy of Arts, as well as a visiting lecturer at several Scandinavian art colleges. She has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions as a fashion designer, costume designer, fashion illustrator, created large-format digital printing interior textiles and more. Discipline and determination are part of Livonia’s well-being, but in the paintings a different way of expression, look, position emerges – ambitious, bold, searching and free in itself. According to the artist herself, the contribution of a professional team is necessary in fashion art, but in painting she is alone, only dependent on herself.
