Solaye Nova


First and foremost, I am an artist. I have been painting for more than14 years. It all started in my childhood….I have graduated from Art College, then I continued my studies in Painting. To improve my knowledge I entered the Estonian Academy of Arts where I got a Master of Science degree in Education.

Many times I have improved my technical painting skills in St.Petersburg at Repin’s State Art Academy. At the courses I have learned human body academic painting and drawing.

Now I am ready and would love to share my knowledge and experience with the audience. To inspire and involve them into my paintings!

My art is a mixture of classical Russian and modern European art schools. I strive to paint what I feel by passing my internal emotions to my works. I believe in making the picture pleasing to the eye, as well as a record of a very specific time and place, which is very unique and intimate. This applies to drawing, sketching, oil painting, and other art styles.
