Strizh Natalia (10.07.1962)

I was born in Ostrogozhsk in 1962.

At the age of nine, I moved to Voronezh.

In 1986 I graduated from the Voronezh Art College.

In the nineties, I was a regular participant in Moscow salons - "Children of the Arbat" and "Three Houses". I took part in foreign exhibitions, including in Paris.

In the two thousandths, I became interested in painting on the walls and devoted seven years to this business.

In 2013, I published my first novel "Free Flight by Rail".

And I'm a member of the Russian Illustrator Community.

"Huge, expressive, imperious, juicy, all-embracing, fantasy, real ... Epithets characterizing the artist's work. Natalya Strizh is distinguished by a wide range of interests and a constant search for new forms of self-expression, which determines the variety of styles and directions in her works.

Natalya Strizh is called a rebellious artist. A wide range of her interests and the constant search for new forms of self-expression, which determines the variety of styles and directions in her works. They offer the viewer lyrical symbolism, unrestrained expressionism, and subtle psychologism. What at first glance seems like chaos and haphazard - the system is; Strizh canvases are united by a special presentation - as if in close-up. A kind of deliberate cinematography, when the object (which Natalya always has a subject) is as close as possible not only to the viewer's eyes but also to his heart" (from newspapers).

Apparently, I have something in my nature - to seek. I felt that expression, bright colors, decorativeness are mine, today I really want to express myself. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. There were heaven and water, today it is dancing: Brazilian carnival and Russian disco.

I prefer to work in large formats. My compositions are partly abstract, partly figurative, fanned by a romantic feeling. The form appears on the verge of these manners and leaves the viewer a lot of opportunities to admire their own associations.
