About Tatiana

tatiana

 

 

In the summer, I do live art painting at several music festivals including Project Earth, 10,000 Lakes (10KLF), Dreamtime Festival, The Big Wu Family Reunion, and The Harvest Festival at Harmony Park. I am also usually busy during the festivals photographing the various bands and musicians while they play.

I have been making blacklight sensitive art for 15 years, creating imaginative hand-bound books, custom painted bedrooms, backdrops and sets for film, theater and bands.

When the blacklight paint is exposed to UV blacklight, the canvas glows with color and when the lights are turned out, it glows in the dark.

I am working on developing a line of glow in the dark wall paper, lamps, furnishings, bedding, pillows and curtains for the UV bedroom are perfect for kids who are afraid of the dark!

Can you imagine a bedroom painted with a giant meadow, bedroom furniture hand painted with blacklight sensitive paints that glows in the dark when you turn out the lights?

What if your child loved going to his or her bedroom instead of complaining about bedtime?

I have been commissioned to paint blacklight bedrooms, basement and party rooms with my unique style. I generally paint flowers, natural scenes and the Universe, since they are my favorite subject matter.

If you are interested in having me design and paint a blacklight bedroom, bar or cafe, please contact me directly.

ILLUSTRATION FOR DREAMWEAVER, MY BLACKLIGHT SENSITIVE CHILDREN'S BOOK PROJECT.

glowing birds

The image above is for my first blacklight sensitive children's book, called DREAMWEAVER. I started the book project in 1993, drawing the ornate and intricate illustrations for it. The images are reactive to UV Blacklight and have secret messages and hidden images that are invisible unless exposed to blacklight. It will be accessorised with a blacklight flashlight for reading under the covers or in the back seat of the car at night.

For more images from this book, see the page on children's books.
