Tatyana Zen

Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Russian-born and California-based, Tatyana Zen is a classically trained artist. Tatyana’s background in engineering, design and philosophy blends into a colorful artistic voice, intricately reflecting different points of view. Inspired by cosmology, galactic history and philosophy, she’s exploring the concept of an eternal soul having a Human experience. ”Painting for me is a search for self-identity. Primarily, I want to express an idea, ask a question or tell a funny story. Equally, the quality of art is my central focus.”

Tatyana was fortunate to learn the secrets of the Old Masters as a copyist at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Consequently, she has developed her own painting method to achieve luminosity and depth of color. Drawing inspiration from the human form, sci-fi, pop-culture, glamour, fashion, 70s dance music, zen philosophy and everyday life. A nature lover and a shaman, Tatyana often incorporates organic elements in her paintings from coffee and tobacco to diamonds and gold. Tatyana’s art is gaining international acclaim. Her work can be found in private and public collections worldwide.

Equally proficient in oils, watercolors and acrylics, Tatyana’s main choice of medium is oil. She favors art installations, large scale statement pieces in oil and eclectic gallery walls mixing various mediums and sizes. Focusing on portraits, her subjects are actors, scientists, politicians, rock stars, as well as people of all walks of life.

Tatyana’s creative process is fluid and intuitive, up until the last moment, everything could change. She works methodically, but passionately, not settling until it feels perfect, some paintings taking years to complete. A prolific painter, Tatyana has many paintings in progress, waiting for the inspiration to progress to the next step. She uses quality professional oil paints, like Gamblin, Winsor & Newton and Da Vinci and favors Fredrix linen canvas.
