About Nataliia Karavan

 
 
  • Biography
    Hello, I'm Nataliia Karavan, artist who has exhibited internationally in London, Paris, and Ukraine. My art path started after the foundation year in Camberwell college of arts, where I've done a research about color movement. I searched myself in fashion during the BA course in London and later found the true path in painting. After getting a Masters degree diploma in Art and Design I started to teach art for kids and adults in China. Currently, I create artworks on a daily basis from my studio in Canada, where I've relocated when the war in Ukraine started.

    Through the abstract compositions, I seek simply to express many different emotions, from calm and serenity to intensity and joy. I use my contemporary style to create paintings that are colorful representations of the beauty we can find in nature. I use vibrant color and bold brushstrokes to express the emotions and mood while creating the piece.

    The paintings are imbued with the vital energy of light, expressing a sense of freedom, tranquility, and harmony. Every painting is built up from multiple layers of oils, spray paint on canvas. In the series of “Pastel landscapes," I use color combinations of pastel shades and texture what give each painting an aesthetically pleasing quality. Landscapes delve the viewer into the dreamy, delicate, nostalgic, places. The “Floral ecstasy” collection shows the state of being full of energy and life, to find our true self and discover the beauty inside. It discovers the female figure too, the emotion of sensibility and self-love.
