Artist
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.

    Artist Statement

    I prefer to work with oil paints and watercolors. The themes for my stories I find all around me: for example, in the street or on the subway. My favorite series are children's games. This is something that can unite people of the same generation, even if they have grown up in different countries. Emotions related to childhood are the brightest.

    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
