This year's official Lattelecom Riga Marathon T-shirt design author is the well-known Latvian artist Ieva Iltnere, who’s unique and recognizable style will delight not only runners but also spectators and supporters of the race. The drawing is created in the artist's recognizable style and symbolizes the diversity of Lattelecom Riga Marathon’s runners and wider international representation.
About the artist:
Ieva Iltnere (b. 1957) entered the Latvian art scene in the early 20th century, beginning of the 80s. Together with her generation’s younger painters she declared herself by radically changing the public’s perception about Latvian figural painting. Since then, the popularity of this generation of artists has not been lost.
Ieva Iltnere is one of the most outstanding and creative artists of her generation. Through intimate scenes her art talks about big, important issues that are relevant to both the individual and the general public. Ieva Iltnere has created her image system with her own individual style.
Works of Ieva Iltnere can be found in the Latvian National Museum of Art, the Latvian Artists Union Museum, the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the Ludwig Museum in Aachen, Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum in New Jersey, and in many private collections in Latvia and abroad.
