Information Gallery + Art Podium
Gallery PR2 is focused on contemporary realistic artworks and gradually since its opening in November 2011, specialized in oilpaintings of professional “Plein-Air’ artists. These artists go outside with easel and painting attributes, to paint "after nature or model'. In addition to sea and city views, we have still lives, landscapes and portraits in our collection of professional artists only from Netherlands; Russia; Germany; Great Brittan; Australia and more. Click here to meet our artists!
Our Gallery also holds the studio of Natalia Dik from St.Petersburg, and therefore you can regularly meet her while painting. She graduated at the Ilya Repin Academy, in St.Petersburg and is professionally active since she was 14. She has a recognizable and beloved colour palette and paints mainly with oil paints, with particularly preferrence for portraits and is a welcome guest at many International Painting Festivals. She paints worldwide s.a. in Germany, Kenya, Netherlands, Russia and Switzerland. In 2012 she gave a masterclass during the "Art in the Open Festival" at Wexford (Ireland) and there obtained the coveted "Artists Award 2012" for a portrait of a nun from the local monastery.
In 2014 her portrait 'Daughter with child' was selected for the prestigeous British Petroleum Portrait Award Exhibition 2014!
Natalia paints "layer upon layer" with freehand in the light-flooded still-lifes; cityscapes; figure paintings and portraits in highly realistic style. Appearing are sea and cityscapes, still lives, landscapes and portraits from variuos artists in different price ranges.
