About the author
Natalia Yanekina's style is so distinctive that she is easily recognisable no matter what genre she chooses. However, perhaps the leitmotif that recurs across all genres is the relationship between man and nature, whether it is a landscape, a still life or a portrait, each one will feature an animal, a bird or a dog, and on the table will be a bouquet of flowers.
The artist's painting style could be described as lyrical abstractionism - there are few concrete, tangible forms, but there is a sense of nostalgia, a haze of remembrance, a feminine tenderness, despite the sometimes crude manner of painting. The artist is characterised by a distinctive, vivid colour palette, the highlighting and exaggeration of individual elements, and the tasteful, unboring use of patterns and decorative motifs.
Natalia Yanekina was born in 1982 in Kaliningrad and graduated from the M. Maliutinsky Higher School of Art in Ivanovo in 2003. Since 2005 she has been a member of the Russian Union of Artists. Since 2008 she lives and works in Lithuania.
