ATLANTA is an international artist with cultural backgrounds from Russia, Germany and the United Kingdom. She thinks in oil on canvas and through a camera lens. Her current studio is based in Cologne, Germany.
Born into a family of artists and art entrepreneurs, she was surrounded by the art world and was taught classical art from an early age. With early first steps in commissioning portraits she established herself as a portrait artist by the age of 20. Her first solo exhibition took place only one year later.
ATLANTA’s work researches the topic of IDENTITY, IMAGE and REPUTATION. Her concepts combine the contemporary Zeitgeist with the skills of Old Masters. High values, visionary aesthetics and skillful execution position her work far away from selfie culture and the fast paced consumerism mentality.
In her portraits, she captures the elegant and honourable essence of an individual for next generations. This might make them want to live up to their best possible versions of them
