Ayuna Kanatkalieva is a young but already popular artist from Syberia(Russia), who has lived in Spain for many years( Madrid, Palma de Mallorca). Works on the genre ” naive fine art” characterized by simplicity of forms, clarity and formal immediacy of the graphic-expressive language. In the same genre paintings by such outstanding artists of the twentieth century without special artistic education as Frenchman Henry Rousseau and the Georgian Niko Pirosmani, who created real masterpieces, painted into the treasury of world art, were painted.
Ayuna came to the visual arts already at a mature age after a fateful meeting with Dalai Lama, who made an indelible impression on her. Since then, she has not parted with paints and canvases working in a state of certain trance and meditation.
The artist is in the constant creative search, mastering new techniques and trends in the visual arts, retaining in her work an ardent love for landscape and gravitating towards abstraction, and sometimes even cubism.
Only one thing in invariable – Ayuna’s works are charged with strength and energy.
Ayuna began exhibiting her paintings at the art-cafes of Mallorca, Geneva, Moscow and Ulan-Ude (Buryatia). She took part in the Art Fair of the Night of Art of Palma de Mallorca in 2018. She held 3 exhibitions in January 2019, in January and August 2020 at the Art Gallery “Can Boni” in Palma de Mallorca.
For now, Ayuna’s paintings are in private collections around the world – Israel, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweeden, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Colombia, Mexico, India, USA.
