“Every moment of our life is filled with beauty, is precious, unique and can never be repeated. Painting is my “time machine” – I travel back in time and to re-live some of those moments again …”
Diana’s work is about nostalgic memories – painting these is her way to re-connect with people, places and moments in time that are precious to her. She is inspired by personal and sentimental experiences, and is fuelled by her acute feeling of an unstoppable flow of time. Her work is often a blend of impressionistic and photorealistic style, with focus on colour and light.
Diana’s most recent paintings are records of North London scenes which she comes across everyday, often while walking or driving.
Diana Sandetskaya is a self-taught artist. She was born in Russia and moved to London in 2010. She started attending painting classes in 2015 and joined mentoring sessions for artists at the Insight School of Art in Whetstone in April 2017 (www.studiofridays.com).
