I’m Nika. I am originally from Republic of Moldova. I grew up in a creative family, as well as engaged in creativity since childhood. I am an experienced painter and muralist. Now I am blessed to be a part of Arlington Artist Alliance and be an active artist in US. I am sure that a talent and inspiration is the most needed part of my art but hard work and experience play the biggest role.
The main emphasis in recent years in my work i do on oil and watercolor painting, but also produce any creativity in digital to be ordered in the “Win Design Agency”. I do custom portraits, decorate the houses and backyards with murals. As well I do graphic design for web sites and marketing. I did embroidering in the past and now I started again so custom hand embroidering is possible as well. Watercolor subjects are random and vary from nature to city ambiance and people. My most often subject is nature but I work in large variety of mediums as well as subjects. I do a lot of custom work for specific needs of the office and house.
In the work of the artist, I consider constant self-development, self-training and training of professional skills to be the most important. I think it is important to visit various exhibitions where I can feel and gain new experience. I draw inspiration from experienced memories, feelings and just everyday little things that suddenly meet me on my way. I get my inspiration from great memories and small things of normal daily life, as well I am passionate about antiquity and classicism. I try to use the stiles and traditions of old European school of art in modern environment. I participated in Bulgarian, Russian and Ukrainian exhibitions and artistic events where I meet a lot of East European artists and discovered a lot of interesting ideas and cultural uniqueness of different nations. I am thankful to my parents for everything they did to develop me as an artist, especially my mom. I am very lucky to be in an atmosphere of love and support of people close to me, supporting me in my aspiration and new ideas. Without them, all this would be impossible.
I like to challenge my artistic abilities from time to time, so I participate in various competitions and exhibitions since 2008 (in countries: Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine).
Please feel free to contact me about my art and design anytime you wish. Of course, enjoy and critique it as much as you can, because I believe that a good critique is what makes the art better and known.
