Painter-Engraver and member of the Taylor Foundation, Nadejda Pastoukhova was born in 1977 in Doubna, a city located in the Moscow region. She began to learn painting at an early age. She then perfected her master's degree in painting and drawing first at the Stroganoff School of Fine Arts (Moscow, 1995-1997), then at the A.N.Kosygin State Textile University (Moscow, 1997-2000). Since 2002, Nadejda has lived and worked in Paris. From 2017 she set up her workshop in Chatou. In her studio, where she teaches painting and drawing classes for students of all levels, Nadejda welcomes us among freshly painted paintings, flowers, a stuffed bird, paint cans, brushes, many of them, and various books (on the polaroid, on Bellini, on Banksy, on Elizabeth Peyton, on Boris Zaborov, a fellow exiled artist who is dear to her). With finesse and humility, she immediately spoke of painting, insisting on clarifying her technique: "I have taken up, on canvas, the old technique of encaustic. The texture of my work is reminiscent of a mural fresco, with a matt surface finish. This technique allows me to create a monochrome, slightly blurry atmosphere that surrounds the subjects of my compositions. My drawings with dry pastels and pigments on prepared paper have the inspiration and the rendering very close to that of my paintings. Having a particular interest in simple compositions, free from the superfluous, whatever the theme of the painting, I draw my inspiration from my childhood memories, from familiar images and faces, from the places of my travels with a particular atmosphere, or from simple and banal objects that have a distinctive importance for me. A work in the dry techniques of engraving completes my know-how and my mastery in the artistic field. »
