Hanna Kratenka is a young artist from Minsk. Born in a picturesque village of Belarus Hanna felt a special connection with nature throughout her childhood, and through its beauty she learned about the world around her. As a young girl she was fascinated by folklore - collecting songs and stories from the rural grandmothers, painting wooden souvenirs of local craftsmen and writing poetry. Not surprisingly, her delicate sublime nature aspired to the Fine Arts, as she began to paint before she started walking. As soon as she became an art school student, Hanna traveled across many local churches, trying her hand at iconography - the art which is usually associated with mature artists. She participated in regional competitions winning prizes. However, the bounds of canonic art techniques were too narrow for the young dreamer who strived to experiment with forms and proportions. Thus her proprietary style was born, which combines emotional pastel graphics with scenes that take us to distant fabulous worlds after her fantasies. Passionate about philosophy, Hanna never discloses the meaning of her art pieces, preferring to make people think. Each picture is a maze of fleeting sensations and eternal feelings and the artist invites the art lovers from around the world to explore them together with her.
