YAROSLAVA TICHSHENKO

ABOUT

The chromatic impact of a painting is of great importance to me; I avoid the modern brownish paintings in every possible way. I can't even see the world in that manner – my vision is very chromatic, and so are my paintings.—Yaroslava Tichshenko

 

Lively, daring, and bold, Yaroslava is unable to paint in any other manner. The energetic decorativeness of her work, rooted in the impressionist and post-impressionist tradition, is intensified by the outstanding draughtsmanship and psychological honesty typical of her work.

 

Yaroslava Tichshenko studied painting professionally for 11 years, first at the College of Art in her hometown of Karaganda, followed by a 6-year program at the famous Repin Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg, Russia, from which she graduated in 2016.

Yaroslava has held solo and group exhibitions in Japan, China, UK, Russia, and Kazakhstan, including exhibitions at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in London. 

She is a winner of multiple awards, including the American Art Awards.

DECORATIVE YET PSYCHOLOGICAL: PORTRAITS

"By applying quick, colourful strokes, I infuse the canvas with energy and do not allow my ardour towards the subject matter to cool down, whatever I paint – be it a person, a still life or a landscape."

"For some years, I have been obsessed by the desire to combine the highly technical Soviet school of painting, which is underpinned by solid drawing skills and a serious attitude towards the model, with the ease, vibrance and spontaneity of impressionists. This symbiosis has become crucial in my depiction of people."
