About Diana Titova
There are no upcoming events
Love of art accompanied her throughout her life, whether it was fine art, applied arts, or the history of art. Consequently, she graduated as an Art Teacher from a Pedagogical University in Russia. Then, guided by intuition she moved first to New Zealand (Auckland), where she spent three years, and after to Spain (Marbella), where she lives and works since 2011, acquiring on the way knowledge of foreign languages and other professions. After having accomplished a two year Yoga Teacher Course and getting submerged in the atmosphere of spiritual practice, Diana started painting Mandalas, Yantras, and Hindu Deities alternating it with previously preferred subjects like woman figures and animals.
Having done classical art study Diana usually works with oil on canvas occasionally creating smaller pieces with watercolor and mixed media on paper.
In her artwork, the artist explores the emotional effect of color and the philosophy of inner harmony in both figurative and abstract geometrical paintings that are full of vibrant energy and light. Her pieces simultaneously propose clarity and mystery, intensity and softness. She emphasizes the meaning of gesture and the precision of line while studying the relationships between the figurative and abstract.
A fascination with sacred geometry and lineal precision continues to underlie her Abstract Geometrical paintings, while her figurative work deploys a meaningful, quiet atmosphere across clear surfaces that leaves the space for self-reflection and self-awareness.
“I create and figurative and geometric paintings and all my art pieces incorporate meaning, sometimes it is clear and easy to see, in other cases it is hidden, disguised within symbols and signs, and requires some time to be figured out. In one word, I like to create riddles and make my viewers wonder what is the meaning. My paintings encourage people the search for the answer within themselves.
My art has a great meaning for me but at the same time I wish to inspire my audience to reflect and to discover something new about themselves”.
My figurative art is mostly inspired by human behavior, feelings and emotions, personal life experience and the experience of those who surround me. I like to reflect on how people interact with each other, with nature and other species as well as with the planet and the Universe. Painting of Mandalas and Yantras primarily comes from my yoga practice experience and an interest in psychology, philosophy, and symbology.”
