“Youth Dreams” (oil on canvas, gold leaf) by Nina Dobrovolska

Colors of Humanity Art Gallery May 1-31, 2022.

Winner: Best of Show

Artist Nina Dobrovolska, professionally known as Nina DoShe, is an artist with Ukrainian roots who has spent the last six years of her life in Estonia, becoming a great admirer of the nature and environment of this country. She has consciously devoted herself to the world of creation later in life. Having a previous higher education in both medicine and banking, she started studying art and graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2018 as a graphic artist. Today, Nina paints, with conviction through classical light and shadow, modelling beautiful worlds to prove that poetically elegant, festive and realistic painting has not disappeared.

Considering Nina’s creation, beauty must be emphasized – beauty is the primary thing she shares with the viewer and considers the most important. Compositions with women, flowers, and spaces that communicate with each other through the glimmers of light and color. Tulips, irises, roses, intimately reserved and personal but at the same time open and candid.

Nina’s paintings are stories and fragments, the beginning and end of which are hidden, alluding to the whole.

Nina Dobrovolska’s paintings create the impression of a collection of short stories, fragments of several someone’s and somethings, passing by the same street of art, meeting through a touch of bright colors.

The artist herself says she has always wanted her paintings to liven more than just the image itself, to be visible, moving and eye-catching. Thus, she has created a fashion collection based on her works where painted fragments have come to life on silk kimonos and scarves. It is only right for beauty to be put on a pedestal and brought forth and Nina’s creation is definitely an ambassador of beauty itself – beautiful compositions, beautiful clean and finely applied colors that vary with gold and bronze accents, beautiful figures and beautiful moments, in beautiful light.

The artist invites us to applaud beauty!
