Nadja Solovieva trained in academic drawing in a private studio in Moscow, where she was born, and further trained at the sessions at Mall Galleries and Prince of Wales Drawing School in London. During her degree studies at Central St. Martins she was challenged to loosen the foundations of rigid soviet training, with its uniform direction of strokes, into a more experimental style, fluid and free, mixing media and adding accents in a non-doctrinal way – pencil, water paints, pastel, markers. Defining her is her light, interesting, and highly modern take on life drawing.
Nadja produces figurative works on paper, which are subtle, sensual, and dynamic, with mesmerising broken likes and unconventional turns of colour touches. She is preoccupied with beauty, feeling and harmony, seeing things differently through her drawings.
Nadja’s works have been exhibited and published internationally.
