KATYA GRIDNEVA EXPRESSIONISM COLLECTION
KATYA GRIDNEVA was born in 1965 Ukraine, an expressionist figurative painter member of our list of ICAS gallery artists. Her collection adds a wonderful sense of mastery in the skills of painting the figurative form. She has experimented with a wide variety of mediums from oils, pastels, charcoal, pencil sketches to mix medium.
Her skilful and attractive compositions are painted from life, where she is able to capture the mood and flow of light across each of her figurative works. We get a glimpse of her in-depth knowledge of the anatomical structure of the human figure, credited to the time spend learning and perfecting her drawing at the World renowned Academy of Fine Arts St Petersburg.
Her paintings of the dance figures comes natural to her, therefore a special delight to view her collection, as each painting captures her expression for the love, grace and elegance of the moving form of dance.
Katya was born in 1965 in the Ukraine. She started drawing classes at the World renowned Academy of Fine Arts in St Petersburg in 1991 and went on to begin the full art course in 1993. She graduated in June 1999. Later that year she came to England where she now lives.
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.“ – Edgar Degas
