Tetiana Samoilovych

Tetiana Samoilovych is a non-professional Ukrainian artist.

She was born in Chernihiv (Ukraine). At present she lives and works in Kyiv (Ukraine).
She started learning oil painting techniques in 2011. She took private lessons till the end of 2016. Her first tutors were Irene Fedotova (Kyiv) and Raisa Atamaniuk (Chernihiv).
She devoted much time to self-education, learning the theory and practice of oil painting. Ukrainian, Russian and American professional artists contributed greatly to this process. Among them there were I.Saharov, O.Buiko, A.Belopesotskaya, I.Zdanov, V.Mamedov, A.Sadykova, E.Kirilchiuk, L.Stepanova, M.Skoblinsky, G.Jenkins and K.Jenkins, B.Ross and others.
In the second half of 2016 she took an interest in Contemporary Art and started doing abstract paintings.
In 2017 she developed her own method of spreading oil paints on canvas with a palette-knife. She called it “spiral” because of the visual effect, i.e. flat spiral circles that one can see on the surface of layers (See “Clown”, 2017).
In 2018 she began to use gold leaves, trying to create the glittering effect or to stress those objects in composition which she wants to attract attention to.
She is fond of impressionism, art nouveau and abstractionism. Her favourite artist is Claude Monet.
