Tatiana Georgievna Kostenko is a Russian painter living and working in and around Moscow. She graduated from the State Repin Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in Saint-Petersburg.
The artist has found her inspiration in human feelings, scenes of life, theatre, poetry, music, childhood and fauna. A special place is given to genre portraits of great writers and artists, such as Marina Tsvetaeva, Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Brodsky, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí to name a few.
Her visual language is diverse, often containing symbols and metaphors. Always on the lookout for her own artistic manner, Tatiana still leans towards soft lines and bright colours. For her, the image is the beginning and the end of the painting.
Tatiana has taken part in over 90 exhibitions in Russia and abroad, with the broad geography of exhibitions including Russia, Italy, France, Cyprus, Slovenia, China and Mongolia. She has more than 70 winner’s certificates in various art competitions. So far, Tatiana has had 11 solo exhibitions, with two painting catalogues published. Her works are exhibited in art galleries and museums as well as being stored in private collections.
