Russia, Saint Petersburg
Age: 43 years
Born in Bratsk in 1977, she moved with her parents to St. Petersburg at the age of 7. At school, the girl did not like it, but it was interesting to disappear all day in the library of her parents, read ancient Greek myths or plunge into the romance of the middle ages, the Renaissance. She studied wood painting and graduated from College with a red diploma. Since 2002, she has been drawing independently, often creating poetic accompaniment to his works. Interest in creativity arose largely due to the support of a mother – "she was an intelligent person of high culture." This is probably why the author pays great attention to the female portrait. Nadezhda is also close to the topic of relationships between a man and a woman. The search for a way out of a difficult emotional state has become the ground for the emergence of creative ideas. The author writes, as a rule, with acrylic paints on canvas. Nadezhda's artistic style combines naivety and passion, intricacy and direct open delivery, and infernal worlds are transformed into a child's dreaminess. Gradually, self-confidence appeared and strengthened, which was helped by communication with other artists, reading literature about art, visiting museums, exhibitions, and occasional private classes. Among her favorite artists are Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt, Aubrey Beardsley and many others. During her career, more than 30 local and large-scale exhibitions of works were held both in Russia (Vyborg, Kronstadt, Veliky Novgorod, St. Petersburg, Moscow) and abroad (Denmark, Greece, USA, Sweden, Great Britain).
