Nina Murashkina

An Artist, Art-Curator, the Performer.

The main topic of my research in art is the psychology of sexuality, personal drama, raised in cult.

I‘m brave, bold and fearless, I‘m erotic and see the world in an erotic context.
I like to talk about what you prefer to save in silent way.
That’s about you dreamt of something, but did not expect to be aware. About the delicious details from the Subconscious and the extreme limits allowed in the social relations.
As for the style, it is a synthetic style of purely feminine perception of the World with a deep ground of classical art education, it is a parallel to the Ukrainian naive art and Kitsch, filled with citations from works of masterpieces of art history.

I create big format bright colors paintings, installations includes ready-made objects, knitted items, embroidery, and the drawings related with my own erotic stories and performances. Turning to the themes of Eroticism and Body, the experience of dreams, I immerse them in the theatrical environment. The artworks may appear upon first glance playful and whimsical, but it ultimately encourage viewers to take a serious look at the complexity of ideas on display.My plots are macabre and quite grotesque, with full of irony and a chance to laugh or to cry. To love or to die.

But for sure, to believe in this Magic by author’s erotic world.
