Painter Nina Tichava utilizes techniques found in screen printing, wood block printing, and etching to create densely layered patterns of dots, circles, and abstractions. Nina visualizes her interest in what she calls “the history of surface” through highly textural materials such as cooper, resin, and brass. With all her processes combined, her works recall lush fields, winter snowfalls, or sheets of stained glass. Ultimately, her paintings are marked with an immense amount of detail while maintaining balance and structure.
Nina Tichava studied drawing and painting at the California College of Arts + Crafts (San Francisco, CA). Her work has been exhibited at George Billis Gallery (Culver City, CA), Davidson Galleries (Seattle, WA), Hangar 1018 (L.A.), the Affordable Art Fair (NYC), and Red Dot Art Fair Miami. She is a 2007 recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant Award.
