Tatyana Kulida is a Russian born artist trained in fine arts in the USA where she lived for 12 years, and in Florence Italy, where she studied and then taught for three years. For the last two years she has been living in Wellington where she runs her own studio gallery and teaches her specialist art, portraiture from life. Tatyana has exhibited in the USA and and has two of her works in USA museum collections, in the Cameron Museum of Art and the New Britain Museum of American Art. She has been awarded several prizes including the de László Award for Classical Draughtsmanship from the Royal Society of British Artists, London, in 2015 and the 4th year Prize residency, the Florence Academy of Art 2013–2014.

Tatyana paints portraits from life using classical techniques from western art tradition and heritage. Her talent has been honed by extensive study and practical training at universities in the US and the Art Academy of Florence. The result for this exhibition is a display of portraits, life studies and still lifes that are of a spellbinding level not often seen in New Zealand.

"In a world obsessed by ever faster processes, I am dedicated to careful and slow observation from life; spending a long time with my sitter allows the portrait to evolve as a dialogue between myself and my subject.”

Please contact the Gallery for an invitation to the opening night, 6pm Wednesday 6 March.
