About Tetiana Volkova

“Art runs after me, overtakes me and looks into my eyes. It tries to tell me that I can’t live without art and art can’t live without me ... ”
Tanita Kahlo

I was born in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, on December 23, 1972. I was a very creative child. I was constantly making and constructing something from everything that came to my eyes. My first canvases are painted indoor wallpapers. My parents were tired of fighting with my home art and sent me to an art school, which I subsequently dropped out.


Although my main occupation was not related to art, I still creatively approached any work. Whether cooking, selling goods or raising children.
During this period, I was fond of photography. But with the advent of digital technology, and especially my favorite program, photoshop, the whole world again changed for me. Not a single day passes that I do not create any digital masterpiece. My day begins with photoshop and ends with it. Now my work is related to design. I'm a freelancer.


The main directions in my art are posters and digital pictorial paintings. I have a lot of creative energy ideas and desires. I also began to paint on canvases, but I am still looking for my own style.
I have a special relationship with the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
So I took the creative pseudonym Tanita Kahlo. Frida Kahlo for many years and still is my Muse. Most of my works, there are more than 300 of them, are paintings and posters depicting Frida Kahlo.


Among my favorite artists are Mathis, Gauguin, David Hockney and many modern artists who paint in similar styles.
In my art, I like to combine the unreadable, I like bright colors, simple shapes, as in applications, foliage shadows and much more. I go from difficult to simple, and not vice versa! But maybe everything will change ...

I still do not participate in exhibitions, because I think that in the days of the Internet and social networks, it will be more productive to direct my forces to online advertising.
