1st Place Bio: TATIANA CHECHUN
I was born in the capital of a small Baltic country in a family of artists 51 years ago. I’ve been drawing since I was a child; the environment (poets, artists, musicians, artists) influenced my development.
I graduated from the university with a degree in philology and journalism, but returned to painting, and also returned to the boy next door. We painted together and got married in 1992 and have been working together in the same workshop for 30 years. We have a daughter (27 years old), who became a successful surgeon.
I’m working on combining the painting direction of the “little Dutch” with modern realism. Combine “eternity and a moment” on one canvas: antique and expensive utensils, next to fresh flowers and fruits. I’m trying to show that in this world, in a certain period of time, there can be something that will stay with us forever and something that will disappear without a trace. https://www.facebook.com/Art-Chechun/
