Natalia Timokhina

Artist member since 2020
Toronto, Ontario

Natalia Timokhina is an emerging artist born in Russia and currently based in Toronto, Canada. With her art she explores the concept of freedom and moving away from outdated rules, frames and limitations. In 2016-2018 she studied at Igor Sakharov’s Fine Art School in Moscow (Russia), which helped her to develop her own painting style and form thematic preferences.

Natalia’s preferred medium is oil due to its color depth and saturation, wide color palette and flexibility. She works mainly in expressionist style, which allows to convey emotions in the most transparent way with the help of color, texture and composition. She draws her inspiration from nature with its inexhaustible beauty and diversity.

Along with that Natalia is deeply concerned about people’s irresponsible use of the biosphere. She translates all these emotions and concerns to viewers through her paintings, be it a still life with a modest daisy bouquet, an abstract work depicting wild fire in Australian woods or a Nelson Mandela portrait.
