Natalie Arsenow grew up and got her Master degree in Fine Arts in Germany. She was encouraged to try out various techniques, which she did with a lot of zeal and passion but drawing has always been her absolute favourite.
During the past 2 years she participated in numerous group exhibitions and also had several solo shows, all in and around Brussels, where she has lived since 2014. Before that Arsenow resided in Paris, Leuven, Seoul and Los Angeles.
Currently the artist is fine tuning her signature style as well as exploring different ideas and methods because she believes that one should never stop learning and experimenting.
Because bare, white walls are not sexy.
Natalie Arsenow creates intricate drawings, which people can enjoy simply for their aesthetic value and inherent beauty. However, she does also love to inject a slight feminist touch. Therefore the artist draws portraits, usually depicting women only, because in her opinion it is high time to put women in the limelight and on a pedestal, where they belong, after existing in obscurity for many centuries.
The inspiration comes from Old Masters on the one hand and photographs depicting actresses on the other hand. She tends to chose famous portraits from the Renaissance and Baroque period and images of rather well-known actresses from the past and present because the audience is able to recognize them, which creates an immediate link between the artwork and the viewer.
