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 wich caused a borderline mental state, the feel of alienation and endless freedom. She grew up in the environment of intellectual values, interest to esotericism and love to nature. 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 widebroad audience through social media. Now her works are shown in various galleries and held in private collections around the world.
