Perhaps the one defining factor that sets Tatiana Kazakova’s art apart is her vast, vivid imagination. She paints highly naturalistic images of birds, fish and land animals and then sets these in dreamscapes and fantasy settings with an confident absurdity that fascinates and intrigues.
It appears that a great deal of planning has gone into each illustration. The work displays attention to each minute detail.
The artist has gone beyond her native Russian background, and pulls inspiration from people, cultures and settings spanning the world, Japan in particular is a recurring theme.
Her paintings have been displayed and sold at prestigious exhibitions in Russia, the United States, Finland and Sweden. They also form part of exclusive private collections pertaining to savvy art investors in Russia, Europe and the U.S. Thankfully, many of her images are available for free viewing online, enabling budding and even successful artists to enjoy her style, learn from her techniques, and the way she incorporates inspiration.

She has obviously viewed and studied artworks from a wide range of sources to gain inspiration.
