Natalia Marinych was born and raised in a creative family in Saint-
Petersburg (Russia). She made her first strokes when she was 8
years old and couldn’t stop after. Marinych’s interest in the world
of art was inspired by her grandmother who was a talented nature
artist. Marinych remembers, “we started early and, step by step,
she patiently taught me in my art education. She showed me
everything I know now about beauty, sensitivity, humanity and
joy. If there is no joy, I can't work at all”.
Marinych’s practice is based on oil finding. Through different
stages of her art education the artist also tried acrylic, gouache, ink
and other water-based medias, but finally she stopped on oil
painting. She believes that “the strokes of oil paint create an
incredible versatility and depth of color on canvas”.
Natalia Marinych paints in realism and abstract styles. She doesn’t
have any particular topic in her works, though nowadays there are
5 different sections in her gallery: animals & birds, flowers &
plants, landscapes & sea & sky, people & portraits, still life. She
explains this diversity of subjects, “I don't have any specific
subject in my art and I seriously doubt I will ever settle down.
There's too much out there to paint to commit to just one subject”.
Russian artist spends her free time educating herself through
reading, meditation, observation and practice. She travels a lot to
learn more about the world and show this knowledge in her
artworks. To remember exactly what she felt in the new country,
Marinych draws pictures on spot. That is why in her luggage there
is always place for small canvas and oil dyes.
Marinych participates in the international competitions and
exhibitions all over the world. Her artworks stay in the private collections in South Korea, The UK, Australia, Austria,
Bulgaria, Spain, France and Russia.
