Tatyana Kaneva Lives and works in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain My paintings are abstract canvases with acrylic , mix technique. I unite applied and fine arts, warm and cold colores, contrast and delicate shades. I create various dimentions with texture made of different materials like sand, paper, glue, cloth ‌ The bright clean colours and the contrast best express my hightly emotional nature, my feisty character and spirit of poet. The forms of my paintings are not concrete, so I let the spectators more space for interpretation. My work is an analytical observation and learning process with focus on the subconscious and the intuition. Transfer to a pararel leality where everything makes other sence, where the magic materializes. My naive desire to change the world.

One of the most impressive aspects of Tatyana Kaneva-Barnhusen's work is the way it accomplishes the difficult task of questioning contemporary visualization practice: we are very pleased to introduce our readers to her stimulating and multifaceted artistic production.

Well, growing up and studying in one country and than living and working in other, very different as a culture and social sistem is not easy, but it gave me an incredibly valuable advantage and life experience. Interaction between different cultures is a big present by the life and I’m very thanksful to have the chanse to live and develop my art in these conditions. The chanse to compare,
