ABOUT ME

My name is Eugenia Shchukina. 
I live and work in Moscow, Russia.

Graduated from Smolensk State University with a degree in Fine Art. During the university period, I was fascinated by human portraits. Trying to print energy and soul on canvas, it became my favorite thing I've been doing the last 10 years.

I was always a stubborn person and could sit for hours at the most painstaking work.
At the same time, I always had high demands on the quality of what I do.
In the kindergarten, I asked my father to draw a girl for me, my father wrote, I did not like drawing, I got angry and repainted the painting until it was beautiful. Discontent, perseverance and now help me develop willpower, technical skills and excel in my business. Negative emotions are an excellent driving force when properly applied.


Now i’m experimenting with different colors and techniques. The most portraits are made with pastel on the paper and are on private collections around Russian Federation, Belarus, Ukraine, Germany, Italy and the USA.

 

STATEMENT

Eyes have always been a central element of my work.
Feelings, thoughts, emotions - all energy is concentrated in them!
In life, people often look away. My work - the opportunity to see the soul of the person depicted and the way to openly see the pictures of my viewer.

Moths in my work are illusions. Non-existent prejudices, fears, complexes. Symbol of changeability and fragility.
