Tatyana Ostapenko paints with oils while obsessing over the recent history of former Soviet Union and the daily lives of people who will never make it to the official historical records. She was born and raised in Soviet Ukraine and currently lives in Portland, OR. She holds a BFA in Studio Practice from Portland State University.
Tatyana’s work has been exhibited at the 2017 Odessa Contemporary Art Biennial (Odessa, Ukraine), the Governors Island Art Fair (NYC),Cape Cod Art Museum (Dennis, MA), Littman Gallery (Portland, OR) Locker 50b (Richmond, VA) and Site:Brooklyn (NY, NY) and many other local and national venues.
When she is not painting, or working as a Russian-English interpreter, Tatyana is picking chanterelles in the mossy woods of the Pacific Northwest.
