Yevgenia Nayberg is painter, illustrator and set and costume designer from Kiev, Ukraine. In her work, she always feels connected to literature. She is fascinated by verbal metaphor. She likes to look for a visual equivalent of a word, for poetic translation into the language of visual art. She’s interested in imagery that is, unlike literature, without narrative, and yet conveys a feeling just as strongly. Through her paintings, she searches for ways to convey the sense of memory of her home, the feeling of a transplant. Both the imagery from her childhood in Europe and her native language play an important role in her work.
Her paintings have been featured in solo exhibitions in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles and Moscow as well as in numerous international group art shows, and are held in private and museum collections worldwide. Her award-winning illustrations have appeared in magazines and picture books, and on theatre posters, music albums, and book covers. Her primary artistic medium are oil on canvas, acrylic and collage. She lives in New York City.
