Bio: Nataliya Tyaglo is a Ukrainian-American artist known for creating paintings with rich, vibrant color, dynamic movement, and personalized meaning that preserve culture and personal history.
Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, Nataliya immigrated to the US in 1994 where she attended School of the Arts in San Francisco and graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in the Interdisciplinary Studies of Psycholinguistics in 2007. After her graduation she collaborated and studied with various artists, most recently completing an international art-apprentice program in L’viv, Ukraine under a nationally acclaimed Ukrainian Artist: Sergiy I. Ivanov.
Her international and multi-cultural knowledge fill her work with layers of meaning and perspectives. Versatile in various media (including graphite, watercolor, acrylics, and oils) her paintings and drawings illustrate music, places, events, and cultural celebrations that uplift her viewers’ spirits and inspire them to connect with a higher, transcended state of being.
Tyaglo’s work has been collected internationally and exhibited across the US including the De Young Museum in San Francisco, the General Consulate of Ukraine in San Francisco, Francesca Gallery in Sausalito, the House of Representatives in Washington and the San Francisco World Trade Center.
Currently she has an ongoing project in which she interviews people from around the world who have Ukrainian roots and creates drawings inspired by memories and life experiences of growing up from Ukrainian places.
