My name is Kate Grishakova. I am a Russian-Slovak artist. I create vivid, bright paintings in an impressionistic manner. I am also a poet, and I write poems that often reflect my boundless love for people and life.
I started to paint when I was a child. Therefore I can definitely say that I have been creating art for my whole life. My favorite mediums are oil colors and watercolors, but sometimes I paint with acrylics. I also like to craft things
I was born on 21 November 1994 in the town of Zhukovsky, near Moscow. Since then, I traveled a lot and have always been on the search for something beautiful, lively, and transcendent. For me, the meaning of life is life itself, in its uniqueness and unpredictability. I am trying to capture these beautiful moments.
I studied painting in an art studio in Russia for 8 years until I moved to Bratislava. I graduated from a mathematical school with a gold medal in 2012, then the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics with honor in 2016. I made my diploma thesis on the topic «Project of Art School Gallery in Bratislava».
I came to Bratislava in 2015 as an exchange student and found tremendous inspiration here, so I decided to finish my Master's degree at the Slovak University of Economics.
Now I work as a freelance artist and teach people how to paint in my own studio in Bratislava.
