Tatyana Fazlalizadeh creates visually arresting images that you’ll find yourself staring and staring at.
She grew up in Oklahoma City, and came to Philly about 6 years ago to attend the University of the Arts.
I is influenced by her background. The way she was raised, the books she has read, her ethnic makeup (Iranian and African-American), have all helped in sculpting her as a person and subsequently influenced her art. Outside of her background, she is inspired by many things: the distress and injustices that people around the world continue to experience, the beam of a child’s innocent smile, the solemn look in a heartbroken woman’s eyes. She’s an oil painter focusing on figures and portraits – portraits of people that have affected her life and/or the world that she lives in. Whether it is a musical artist or, a fictional character that has helped in stereotyping Black people or, a best friend.
