Natalia Smirnova Dark Spirits

Posted by darkartandcraft Admin on

Natalia Smirnova creates dark spirits, angels, renaissance landscapes, and apparitions with simple watercolor and tempera on cardboard or primed wood.

The St. Petersburg-based Artist's illustrations hearken back to earlier times (the work of Gustave Dore and Italian Baroque painter/print maker Salvator Rosa come to mind). Medieval tales and ghostly spirits are often depicted in monochrome, created in the humble surroundings of the Artist's home studio in Russia. The Artist currently works as a icon restorer in addition to her unique creations as a painter.
