Artwork

A boy leaps through the air, arms outstretched and ready to hit the water. This painting is part of Nata's signature Summer series, in which she typically sketches at the beach and then creates the final piece in her studio. She painted this work in May of 2020 after several months of sheltering inside her home. "Perhaps most of all I dream of freedom," says Nata. "Running up and jumping into the water. And it doesn’t matter what it will be, the sea, the ocean or a small river."

Nata Zaikina

Prague, Czech Republic

Czech artist Nata Zaikina’s paintings are inspired by her 1970s childhood. As she walks the streets in Prague, she is inspired by anything that triggers a memory of her youth--an old movie, a song on the radio, or a conversation overheard on the street. Her paintings of children’s games emit warmth and joy. The viewer can’t help but smile and reminisce upon their own days as an exuberant child. Nata is especially interested in capturing her figures in movement, particularly while jumping. “I try to show the hidden dynamics inside the static figure,” she says. The artist works from an attic studio in Prague, where she looks out over the red tiled roofs of the city while she paints.

Hi, thank you very much for the good evaluation of my work. Your words make me happy) Each artist needs to have the response to his work. It is impossible to move on and to have progress without this. I'm sorry I could not answer right away: I returned from a journey only today. I'm ready to paint a picture similar to Jump in the Summer in one week and post it here on the Ugallery. It will not be an exact copy, but I'm sure that it will be better))) If you have any additional requests, let me know. Have a nice day, Nata Zaikina

Jump in the Summer; I was going to buy it but somebody beat m eto it. Colors and subject were perfect, really spoke to me. I hope you do more. You have a wonderful original style.
