Tanya Chutko | Fine Art and Illustration
Bio
Bio
Tanya Chutko is a Ukrainian American artist, educator and ultimately, a creative cultural investigator whose interest lies in the research of painting, cultural fairy tales and theology. With a BFA from The Art Institute of Boston @ Lesley University, Chutko's work demonstrates her extensive history with illustration and her ability to create bridges between the ethereal and earthly experiences of her subjects. Chutko primarily uses oil, acrylic, graphite and colored pencil on birch wood. Using birch wood as her canvas, a strong, un-malleable, natural foundation allows her to further investigate the underlying meaning within her work. She has a strong command for realism, and invites her viewers to see the intangible experiences of her subjects' inner world through whimsical backgrounds and compelling eyes. When Chutko is not working in her studio at Artspace Buffalo, she cultivates and fosters creative development through art education for Buffalo Public Schools. Besides her BFA in illustration and fine arts, Chutko holds a Master's in Art Education from State University of New York College at Buffalo.
