Marina Urchukina

Born: 1965

Hometown: Kiev

Based in: Kiev

 

Marina Urchukina (b. 1965), was born in Moscow and studied at MGIK. For as long as she can remember, she always painted. Drastic changes in the country, then taking care of her family and child veered her off the professional artist career for a while, though. But recently she decided to come back. She loves flowers, she does mostly flowers: on canvas, on paper, on plywood, on baubles, anything goes. Marina lived and painted in the US, Slovenia, France, Russia, Ukraine. The best description of her would be a self-taught artist. She took a few private classes from some distinguished masters and gratefully absorbed their precious advice. Oil and acrylic on canvas, brush and palette knife are her favorite media and tools.
She genuinely believes that the flowers, nature, in general, is a portal between the domains of reality and fantasy. Growing up, she read vast amounts of fairy tales and legends. Marina sometimes feels that this childhood experience spills into her paintings. Perhaps it should be mentioned that she also wrote poetry. One can guess that Marina's poetic view of the world also crawls into her works.
Marina believes that art is about sharing. It is about sharing the artist's emotions. She thinks it is about sharing the moment of awe of the artist. Her emotions, this is what she tries to catch when she paints.
Works are in private collections in the US, Ukraine, Russia.
