Natalya Savenkova Art Divya Gallery
Natalya Savenkova is an experienced artist based in Russia whose paintings have been exhibited nationally and in Ukraine. She cites meditation as being vital to her artstic practice, as it makes it possible to explore and discover her inner world, a sense of unity with nature, new experiences, as well as a state of silence within and “the melody of the universe”. Savenkova’s diverse composiitons are exclusively created with oils on canvas.
« Painting is a bird flying into the space of love, light, and harmony. »
I work in painting (oil and tempera), graphics, watercolors, batik.
I paint in oils in various genres of landscape, figurative and portrait, as well as still life.
Since 2005, I am a member of Union of the Artists (Russia).
1981 to 1985 – I studied in the Bryansk Art College.
1994 – I graduated Saint Petersburg State Repin Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture.
I live in St. Petersburg.
I started drawing since I was a child. My mother was an artist. We always had plenty of paper and good paint in the house. She became my first teacher and an enthusiastic spectator. I am very grateful to her for this.
My first exhibition was when I was 10 years old. Since then, I have been constantly participating in group and solo exhibitions.
From an article by Irina Glinkina, an art critic:
“The world of Natalia Savenkova has a special charm and attraction, a quiet but fascinating beauty. Savenkova is a lyricist, so in her technique, the “scale of feelings” makes up the meaning of each created work, whether it is a landscape, portrait, still life or a fantastic composition. She pays special attention to fantastic compositions. Any such composition is an invitation to look into the inner world of the artist. In these works, a characteristic feature of her is especially visible – the fusion of the fantastic with the real. The eternal theme of Love, the world of animals, insects and flowers, fairy-tale fairies and angels are also intertwined here. In all her paintings, the main goal is to create a single colorful harmony.”
In 2022 New York Realism Fine Art congratulated me on my success and victory in the international competition “ART AND SOCIETY”!
For the picture “Fantasy”, by the decision of the jury, I was awarded 1st place and I received a Gold Medal in the FANTASY category!
