Kate Grishakova

emerging artist from Eastern Europe

My name is Kate Grishakova. I am a Russian-Slovak artist. I create vivid, bright paintings in impressionistic manner. I compose poems, which often reflect my boundless love for people and life.

I was born 21 November 1994 in town Zhukovsky near Moscow. Since then I have 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 try to capture moment of beauty so I take paints and paper with me and create on plein air.

I started to paint as a child. I definitely can say, that I do it whole my life! My favourite art materials are oil colours and watercolours, but sometimes I paint with acrylics and craft things.

I was studying painting in Art Studio in Russia for 8 years till I came to Bratislava. I graduated from mathematical school with a gold medal in 2012, then Plekhanov Russian University of Economics with honour in 2016. I made my diploma thesis on the topic «Project of Art School Gallery in Bratislava» and now realised it!

I came to Bratislava in 2015 as an exchange student and found tremendous inspiration here, so I decided to finish my Master's degree in Slovak University of Economics.

Bratislava became a place where my hundreds of roads came together.

Now I work as a freelance artist and teach people how to paint in my own studio in Bratislava.
