ABOUT MY ART
The majority of my works depict subjects in metaphysical scenes and states of shifted perception. Themes of tricky human mind and one’s connection with supernatural have always been intriguing and inspirational to me, as well as literature, cosmology and biology. This obsession combined with personal esoteric experiences led me to create surreal images that visualize ideas of illusory world filled with phenomenal interconnections and strong unbearable feelings. Each piece I paint tells a fairy-tale based on a true story, and gives breath to new concepts like a never-ending series of dreams.
Tanya Shatseva is a traditional artist, born in Russia in 1990. Currently resides in Saint Petersburg creating acrylic paintings and illustrations in the genre of pop surrealism.
As a child Tanya has been moving all around the country with her family which caused a borderline mental state, the feel of alienation and endless freedom. Despite her passion to relieve emotional tension by drawing Tanya has never considered choosing art as a career. She was constantly exploring the precious world and her own boundaries, collecting knowledge and experiences. Tanya has been modeling internationally, performed as a show-girl in Turkey and US, practiced Buddhism in Korean temple, studied foreign languages and eventually got the clear awareness of her destiny. In 2010 she took the path of a full-time freelance self-educated painter, developed a unique style and gained a wide-broad audience through social media. Now her works are shown in various galleries and held in private collections around the world.
