Artist Name

Galina Gataullina

Born: 1967

Hometown: Naberezhnye Chelny

Based in: Naberezhnye Chelny

I was 6 years old, I was sitting on the floor with colored crayons, and I drew and on TV there was a film about the artist and I couldn't get off the screen, and when the film ended I screamed at the whole house: Mother, when I grow up, I will be an artist! Since then I've been drawing every day, it's my life and my biggest love!
To come to my dream I studied for a long time, first at art school, then 5 years at art university, I tried to know the mystery of fine art and learn to transfer my feelings to canvas.
Painting for me is always an experiment, an experiment with color, form and texture. I get great pleasure from the search for color harmony, I am not afraid of bright colors and contrasting combinations, it gives joy to life, emotional heat.
We live in a complex, pragmatic world and painting helps me and my viewers to return to the present with feelings and experiences and that is my purpose!
My teachers I consider such classics as Chagall, Matisse,Cezanne, Kandinsky
I will be endlessly glad if my creativity brings someone a piece of happiness and beauty!


Galina Gataullina In The Studio

We have lost touch with Nature, we have forgotten that we are in a very close connection with her. We have forgotten that in prehistoric times we had deep intuition and could predict the future, read minds and even use the same language as animals. The purpose of my art is to remind of the close connection with nature, to feel its beauty.
