Natasha Zraikat is an imaginative realist oil painter based on the Gold Coast.
Natasha Zraikat is an imaginative realist oil painter based on the Gold Coast, Australia. She has lived and worked creatively in both Australia and Europe, and has been involved in several prestigious art awards, including having won Best of Show in the City Wide Art Competition in Florence, Italy.
Natasha is intrigued by the philosophical and the metaphysical, so while her work is generally realistic, and in some cases, narrative, it is also symbolic. She believes that we are intrinsically linked to the landscape around us. In her latest series, Natasha asks – Where do we end, and where does our environment begin? Are we in fact one and the same?
Natasha’s deep emotional response to her subjects is reflected in her work. Her paintings convey empathy and sensitivity, inviting the viewer to feel her subjects them as much as see them. Partly realistic, partly unreal, they seem to exist somewhere between the conscious and the subconscious – much like a dream or a memory held over time.
