“The brain is one of the most mysterious and complex things that we have yet discovered in our universe, but in today’s busy world it often gets overwhelmed with large quantities of information, bombarding it from every direction. I believe that the best way to reach someone’s feelings, and emotions and inspire their deeper thinking and contemplation is through the simplicity of suggestive minimalistic line art that on one hand is instantly read by the subconscious and easily digested by the human mind, and on the other, allows for the process of co-creation and building of own unique perception via stimulation of the viewer’s imagination. Some elements of the image are better left out, so the mind is motivated to finish the picture by being an active participant and partner in creation, rather than just a passive observer”.

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, Tatyana Mark (originally Markovtsev) immigrated to the U.S. with her family over 25 years ago, settling just north of Chicago. An engineer by trade, she has never imagined that one day her works would find universal appeal and touch the hearts of tens of thousands of people from over 150 countries, who visit her website, and social media pages and go to see her works at the international art shows. Being a self-taught artist, she only discovered a strong desire to draw and started her journey to mastery in her late 50s, completing over 500 works since.

Tatyana started with simple line drawings on cold press paper using India Ink. Today her style has evolved to include mixed media, digital art and larger painting compositions using acrylic on canvas that utilize abstract colorful backgrounds and various lighting in combination with her signature lines that all complement and complete each other, causing the viewers to have a deeper engagement while experiencing an even fuller spectrum of feelings and emotions through her works of art.

Since debuting with her first solo show at Chicago’s Edge Gallery in 2012, Tatyana has participated in numerous domestic and international exhibitions and art fairs became a 3-time finalist and award recipient at the major international artist competition illustrated over 20 books published in different languages, decorated several commercial spaces and cafes with her art (in Chicagoland & Paris), and developed logotype and label for a US-based Sake brand. She continues to inspire many artists to re-create her signature lines in their own style, such as glasswork, mosaic, jewellery, sculpture, body art, and even culinary creations.

In her art she aims to express powerful and complex human feelings via just a few elegant lines, capturing a wide variety of emotions with as much simplicity and clarity as possible. Her minimalistic suggestive style is designed to bring the lines of her artwork to life, combining minimalism, elegance, and dynamics of movement with the active imagination of the viewer. Her goal is to show maximum emotions with the bare minimum of lines and to make the viewers involved in building the illustrated experiences and situations along with her, by filling in the details in their minds, that she leaves out. This makes them literally feel the lines, giving the name to her FeelTheLine brand and often results in her audience having an immersive experience by seeing themselves or their loved ones as the subjects of her works.

    Art | May 17, 2024

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
