Michael Tatarnikov

Oezbekistan, 1978

I am an autodidact and I already started drawing before reaching the school age. My art styles are surrealism and neorealism. In 2009 I came to the Netherlands as a refugee because of my sexual orientation. My work reflects my youth, was a tool to survive and is a way of processing. I work until now only with pen, from my mind and soul. But I would like to experiment with other materials and styles.
