Seeing beauty in the bittersweet world
From San Francisco Hearts Sculptures, to San José art galleries — Art of Ukrainian-born American contemporary artist Natasha Kramskaya can be Seen around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Natasha Kramskaya started painting at a young age and was influenced by van Gogh, and later Warhol and Basquiat. In her twenties, she moved to the US where she graduated from the San Francisco Academy of Art University and begun work as a creative director.
Natasha’s work focuses on emotion and is inspired by color, surroundings, memories of growing up in Ukraine, and global events. She works with acrylic, oil and mixed media. She’s developed her own technique where she paints with wide visceral brushstrokes, sometimes applying paint directly from the tube. She often incorporates discarded single-use plastic, collage and other objects into her work.
Natasha’s art has been published by multiple magazines including San José’s Content and La Raiz. She is one of the selected artists for Hearts in San Francisco. She is a featured artist in multiple online galleries including Saatchi and Singulart. Natasha’s work has showed in dozens of exhibits in galleries around the San Francisco Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest, and her art can be found in collections across the United States, as well as internationally.
