Born in cossack capital of Southern Russia, Rostov-on-Don, Natasha Kimstatsch moved with parents to Norway as a teenager. In spite of engagement in art world at early stage of upbringing, she put visual arts on hold for over a decade and dedicated herself to studies in Religion History as well as Art History with focus on Oriental Art at University of Oslo.
She started painting in her 30s as post-traumatic healing practice after the death of her father in tsunami in South East Asia Christmas 2004. Her path led her to the circle of students of Norwegian living old master Odd Nerdrum, with whom she never had opportunity to study personally, but had received advice and mentoring from several of his apprentices.
Natasha spent a year in Florence, Italy, reconnecting with past known for having nourished Boticcelli, Da Vinci, Michelangelo and later Antonio Mancini and Pietro Annigoni, who she is deeply bounden for her artistic growth.
She also on several occasions stayed in Madrid taking instruction from Arantzazu Matrines known for monumental fairy tale pieces being deeply appreciated and collected by George Lucas.
Natashas artwork are individually handcrafted pieces using highest quality materials as herringbone linen, lead, gold, grounded mother of pearl, resins, Maimeri Puro and Mussini oils.
Most of motifs are based on personal life experiences or visions received during sleep, upon which any association with previous rendering of topics is being discovered after the commencement of a piece.
Natasha is fond of polyphonic music and occasionally sings in Catholic or Anglican church choirs, and is author of monograph about life of Marchesa Casatti and artbook “Ultima Thule, journey in silverpoint”.
She now lives and works in UK.
