About myself and my artworks

I live in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Profession Artist. Member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine.
Material specialization: Acrylic painting
Repertoire: Objects, people, hyperrealism, photorealism, realism, semi-abstraction. Historical oil painting techniques embodied in acrylic.
Plots: Still life, nature, environment, people.
A little more about me.
I spend over 11 hours a day at my easel.
I can see at a glance whether the plot or composition will look on the canvas.
I know what global trends are, what prestigious galleries at Art Basel offer and what is trending for modern interiors.
And this is not fortune-telling. This is knowledge and experience!
Once I realized that making money on "Popular Subjects" is certainly good, but it is much more pleasant for me to give people not just beauty, but also originality, meanings, style, delight!
To create one picture, I take more than a hundred photographs in order to choose the best one.
But these efforts are more than justified by the Wow effect from the contemplation of the picture.
My first education and long practice was a fashion designer. Fashion and style is built-in. There are no exes in this case!
I myself earn and value money! And not only their own, but also their collectors. I confidently call myself a PROS in painting and constantly keep my knowledge in good shape and develop, develop, develop.
Artist's statement.
I share my surprise at nature in painting, based in large part on her experience in fashion and design. In every work I try to comprehend the world, to portray the subject more realistically than it really is. And I do not just draw a beautiful picture, but in my works I reflect. Inspired by pop culture, politics, icons and modern trends, the idea behind my work remains the same - to create simple and understandable messages delivered in a clean and visually satisfying manner. In my acrylics, I compete with the camera, trying to prove to myself that humans can compete with technology. I love hyperrealism because it's a very complex style and people like it.
I paint hyperrealism with acrylics because it's even harder than oils. Every time I start a new job, I think that it is impossible to do it. And every time at the end of the work I get pleasure - WOW I did it! ..

KyivGallery Art Critic Art critic's review 26/06/2018

Nataliia Bahatska paints in style complex and mixed, for example, based on the style of realism, she modifies it in different paintings, adding surrealism or elements of the style of cubism, or even creating a mystical, illusory environment around the realistic objects.

Nataliia Bahatska's comprehensive education determined her search. As a fashion designer, she creted series of paintings, where the girls are quite realistically depicted on the background of geometric planes, as though borrowed from cubism paintings.

Nataliia paints a number of still lifes - as a "replica" on the subject of Dutch and English classical still lifes with the accompanying attributes: vases, glasses, fruits and flowers appear on a deep dark background. All these objects and environments acquire their aura, glow, giving the viewer a kind of mystical realism. Elements of mysticism are butterflies, present in a number of female images: "Memoir", "Mock", "Oh you girlfriend ...". These images, concise in their graphic completeness, attribute us to the metamodern style, which is based on some contradictions, instability, incompleteness.
