Artist Alla Tkachuk explores the notions of human identity and the social dimensions of art. The 20th Century Dictators, 2004-07, is a series of paintings, floor adhesive prints, posters, a wallpaper, textile, 48-sheet billboard and animation. Going beyond the historical or documentary analysis, the series explores images of Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Mao Zedong and Stalin in contemporary context. Portraits of Prince Charles, 2001-02, were created following a sitting at Highgrove. The portraits including the 'Black Prince' and 'Prince of Cool' featured on the front pages of The Times (UK) and Bild (Germany), as well as in ITV and BSN reports, Der Spiegel, Hello, Jackdaw Art Review, and other press and media. ‘Black Prince’ became a cover of the literary magazine Der Freund (Germany) and won the Lead Award's Gold Medal ‘The Best Magazine Cover of 2005'. National Portrait Gallery (NPG, London), 2002-06. Alla curated her seminar series on modern portraiture ‘The Changing Face of Portraiture’ at the NPG debating how portraiture can escape the shackles of convention with leading artists and critics such as Maggi Hambling and Tim Marlow. The Times (UK) was the series’ Media Partner and wrote: ‘Alla Tkachuk believes that radical new concepts are needed in portraiture today. She would like to encourage 3D digital and installation portraiture, has invited [to the seminars] a cosmetic surgeon to discuss his work ‘as an artist', commissioned a ‘sound portrait’ and offered herself as a living portrait to grace the walls of the NPG’. (The Times, 13.06.06). '5D Instigative Heads', 2004-08, is a pioneering experimental work that transforms the production and consumption of representational art through digital technologies. The ‘Heads’ are 3D scans of facial expressions painted in oil (texture maps) and then digitally merged, moulded and deformed in space and time (3D modelling and animation), integrated with electro-acoustic landscapes and augmented reality, printed in 3D and projected. Social Art Project MASK, 2006-18. Alla believes in the social dimensions of art. Art should empower people and help them to work towards a common goal. It should deal with issues directly rather than simply express them. In 2007, she set up a social art project MASK (Mobile Art School in Kenya) to strengthen creativity of young people in Africa to enable them to effectively solve problems and bring change.
