Svitlana Soldatova

The two worlds that most often find their expression in Svitlana Soldatova’s works are exotic Australian nature and the realm of fantasy, which takes its beginning in the artist’s imagination and comes to life in her paintings.

Svitlana has lived in Australia since the early 1990s. She obtained her initial art education in her native city, Kyiv, Ukraine.

Svitlana Soldatova’s illustrations for three Ukrainian fairy tales, The MittenThe Sparrow and the Bush and The Little Straw Bull put a new spin on old favourites.
