Kateryna Kosyanenko was born in Kiev, in 1978 She graduated in 2002 from the National Academy of Arts and Architecture and completed her postgraduate studies in 2005 She is a winner of several prestigious artistic awards and scholarships in Ukraine and abroad including Nice, Paris and Krakow, and has a following of dedicated patrons and collectors.

Kosyanenko describes herself as an “old fashioned” artist, inspired by tradition, history and fairy tales, with stylistic influences from Italian Renaissance and Ukrainian Baroque. Having said that, Kateryna produces art that is absolutely original and unique and she is known for her distinct style: the enlightened faces drawing likeness to religious paintings and Orthodox icons; harmonious and complex color combinations often including rich aquamarine blue, sienna and umber; accurately painted realistic landscapes that reflect the artist’s emotional condition. Her paintings are filled with meaning and stories, executed with highest attention to technique and detail.

She is the member of the association Ukraine – France based in Kiev as well as the association Art Without Borders based in Krakow.
