Nika Chernyaeva was born in Moscow. She completed the course “New Strategies in Art” in the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). In 2010, Nika was short-listed for the British Annya Sand Prize, and in 2011, she was long- listed for the Kuryokhin Award with the Just Dream It project (as the best media object). She took part in the Russian, Eastern & Oriental Fine Art Fair (London, 2010), Student Art Fair, Artplay (Moscow, 2010). The сoloristically expressive works of the artist whose color intensity is similar to Fauvism are filled with expressive fury and elements borrowed from applied arts. The work captures attention with its quirky and sophisticated ornamentality. Despite the unusual conception of space that deftly handles geometric shapes, linear rhythms, and structural volumes, the painting is surprisingly balanced.
