NATALIA CHARAPOVA
Painting has been my passion since early age. The
Art is the very air I breathe, the purpose that
guides every day of my life ... In my teen years
I attended the Art School in Obninsk, Russia,
studying all sorts of art with the well-known
Russian artist Alexander Gromatskis. After
graduating from High School I attended Moscow
School of Architecture (Moskovskii Arhitekturnii
Institut).
During my years at school I extensively studied
the History of Art, as well as the art of oil,
acrylic, watercolor, and sculptures. I
participated in many art exhibitions.
I immigrated to Canada in 1991 and worked as an
architect with a number of companies in Canada
and USA. In 2001 I turned to Art as a full time
occupation. Up to that point the art was my
favorite pastime. In March of 2001 I moved to
Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada.

Moving to Newfoundland opened a door to a new
"me" - my Renaissance was about to take place.
However, at that time I had a genuine fear that I
might be lost in that very small and unfamiliar
to me world ... Natural beauty of Western
Newfoundland captivated me. Astonishing changes
of Newfoundland from season to season charmed me
from extraordinary fearsome winter landscape to
the rich and tranquil green oasis in summer. This
magical island in North Atlantic awakened my
passion for the art and transformed turned my
solitude into something new - my Renaissance was
about to take place ...
dedicated myself full time to the artwork with
awe-inspiring passion and thoroughness. Soon my
work started to appear at the Franklyn Gallery in
Corner Brook, NFLD, Canada, and soon after -
Spurrell Gallery in St.John's, NFLD, Canada.
Experimenting with painting dye on silk opened an
exciting and unknown avenue in my art. Inspired
by uniquely enchanting images of Newfoundland, I
would choose medium, color, and a manner of
expression that would seem slightly out of my
control creating something wonderful and
unexpected.
I do not think that my initial success as an
artist is a mere happy accident. I create art
based on intuition and my understanding of art. I
learn from the great masters of the craft. In
summer 2002 I took oil painting classes with
well-known French artist J-C Roy in France. I
came back for more inspirational teaching the
next year. Oil on canvas became my new discovery.
Expressing myself thought oil helped me to
discover magical vistas of rural France.
4
My work with oils (both "technique" and
"content/images"), did not come about through any
self-conscious process or rational analysis. It
occurred naturally and openly through the work
itself. I am guided by work itself - through
layers of brilliant colors incorporated with a
blend of a simple story, nature scene, and
abstractions. I try giving my paintings an air of
magic and mystery.
Traveling is the endless source of inspiration. I
create art based on what I experienced in many
places around the world - Holland, Belgium,
France, Spain, Russia, USA, Italy, Canada ... I
am always on the lookout for an image or a view
... a riveting beauty of the almighty sky over
the lake ... a house dwelling with interiors
filled with strewn belongings ... the movements
of fishing boats on the water ... the edges of
cliffs ... the constant interaction of the
elements ... the roar of the ocean ... the
tranquility of the tiny villages ...
n July 2003 I moved to Chicago, Illinois. I
continue my painting, delving into new artistic
realms, but keeping in close touch with
Newfoundland and Canada - a place where I was
re-born as an artist. My works can be found in
the collections of the Government of
Newfoundland, corporate and private collections
in Canada, the UK and USA. Look for the listing
of my art at the galleries
