Natasha Gavrilova (GraNata) is a full-time nomad artist, graphic designer, printmaking expert, who have lived and worked in different countries. She is currently based in Madrid, Spain, where she has her own studio for experimenting in freedom.  She can't imagine a day without art.

Natasha was born in Russia and after graduating from Omsk Art University in 2000, she worked illustrating, designing and art directing in the fashion industry. In 2006, her life changed dramatically following her emigration from Russia and she decided to fully dedicate to art in every of the countries she has living since: Indonesia, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Colombia and Spain…so far. 

Natasha is a multidisciplinary artist working with various techniques from traditional to experimental, combining common raw materials of everyday life such cardboards and pizza boxes. She also works in the technique of mixed media, using water color, ink, acrylic, charcoаl, collage…

Her strong passion is graphic art and, as a printmaking artist, she does lithography in different surfaces, constantly studying and improving her skills.

Her living style with frequent moving from country to country has a huge influence in her art, very inspired in different cultures, cities and peoples. Her urban landscapes show that strong emotional connection with the place she is living in that moment in time. 

Her motivation is to look for new effects, new look at the expression of ideas, harmonious combinations of colours, shapes, rhythm that cannot be repeated. Always looking ahead and going her own way. This is how her project «TRANZIT» was created: A collection of unique works -performed on the cardboard boxes that she used to move to her next country destination- on the first impression of the cities in which she found herself at that particular moment of life. Some kind of diary of an empty box.

"My art is highly influenced by my nomadic life style moving from country to country. My work reflects my impressions, feelings, observations and emotional connection with the place I am in that particular moment of my life".
