Nata Shemshur is a contemporary American-Ukrainian artist and designer. The artist's name is Natalia Ignatenko (pseudonym Nata Shemshur). Born in 1966 in Odessa, Ukraine. In 2016, Nata moved to the USA, where she has been living ever since.
She combines classical and contemporary art in her works. From the image of people, nature with their depth to the transfer of the abstract and expressive.Inspired by the classics of Michelangelo, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, artist Nata Shemshur tries to make a conceptual contribution to contemporary art.
Artist's statement: The main goal is to convey an emotional and semantic message. Her work is not only visually appealing, but also gives an impetus to philosophizing. All the artist's works have several semantic levels. They combine today's worldview of the artist and appeal to something historical that unites us all. They convey both the deep inner world of the image and the abstract expressiveness and musicality of painting.
Before becoming an artist, she worked for over 10 years in education, university teaching, interior design, restorer, marketing. In 2019, she retired from the corporate world to pursue her creative dreams and pursue a full-time career.
