NATASHA PANTELYAT

Inspired by the Art Nouveau style of Alphonse Maria Mucha and the spirit or the Art Deco directions of Tamara de Lempicka, the paintings of Natasha Pantelyat observe their legacy as a demarcation point to achieve a remarkable immediacy of presence. With sympathetic clarity and humor, she colorfully brings life complex degrees of feminine and, even more deeply, human disposition.

Russian-born Pantelyat received her Fine Arts degree for Kiev Art College and a degree in Fashion Design and Illustration from Fashion Institute. She worked as an artist, illustrator and fashion designer in Russia, Ukraine and Europe before moving to the U.S., where she is currently Senior Director at a leading fashion company.

As a Fashion designer and illustrator who create collections of clothes for larger-sized women, I have recognized the unique and charm that illuminate from the personalities of the women in my illustrations. This inspired me to transform the illustration quality of my images from magazine pages onto canvases. This transition allowed for the collaboration of images that convey a variety of themes of women’s daily lives. My heroines are in love with life and themselves. They reward their fans with a gift of individual beauty, acknowledging with their dazzling appearances that "Beauty comes in every size."

Natasha expresses her special interest to billiard art. You may see her collection of images on the next pages.
