Born in 1962 in the USSR, Tatiana Lysak-Polischuk lives and works between Paris and St. Petersburg. She began to exhibit her works in Russia and Europe during her years of study at the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Fine Arts. Since 1989, her paintings have been a great success at auctions in Paris, Munich, Brussels and Moscow.

Tatiana’s works spread some light on complex themes like separation of the finite and the infinite as well as the individual and the world. She creates her own rules in order to remove contradictions and resolve antitheses, collecting them into a single whole whilst shrinking the distance between the subject and the object. It’s through the combination of various techniques and thorough work with color and texture that the artist achieves deep expressiveness and emotional fullness within her images. Heart and mind, thoughtfulness and impulsivity complement each other and create a strong link between forms, dictated by both feelings and reason.

Tatiana is a member of the Association of Painters of the Marais (since 2018), the Association of Artists in Normandy (since 2017), the Taylor Foundation (since 2015), the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (since 2008), the St. Petersburg Union of Artists (since 1994) and the Union of Russian Artists (since 1994). Her works are in numerous private and public collections in Russia and Europe.
