The Art

 

“I live inside my art pieces - in my world of fantasies.”

 

Being a painter, a graphic artist, and a sculptor, Tatiana’s work is incredibly deep and sensual. The colors, abstract subjects, and the creative energy of her works capture the viewer like a warm bliss.

 

The incomprehensible, mysterious Tatiana Nikolaenko creates her paintings furiously and lightning-fast, as if the mighty forces of the universe gave the artist energy and inspiration. Powerful and magical images appear on canvases, provoked by solely the intuitive plan of the artist.

 

Tatiana’s paintings reflect the metamorphoses of our time. The drawing seems as if moving inside the canvas. We can feel the speed and the weight of the shapes, they tell us about the tumultuous life inside the visual space.

 

The composition is abstract; the colors seem to come off the artwork and transform into real feelings of the one who enters into interaction with them.

 

Any art lover can find in her works his personal interpretation and philosophy.
