Natalia Schäfer (Schaefer) is a Germany based awarded artist and illustrator. Since 2009, she has produced a variety of calendars, stationery products and gift books to great success, together with renowned German - language publishers.
Delicate mandalas with spiritual and contemplative patterns in glimmering shades of metallic colours illuminate spaces from the walls, alongside expressive abstract paintings and African- style pieces inspired by folk art, you can‘t pigeonhole Natalia Schäfer. The work of the autodidact, as Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design, who was born in Russia and has lived in Germany for many years, is as multi- faceted as the techniques she has developed.
She uses materials such as metal, genuine gold, silver and copper to perfect her paintings. Driven on by a profound appreciation of aesthetics, her gifts to the viewer are instances of beauty and relaxation in our often hectic everyday lives.
Natalia has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions, art fairs and art shows in Berlin, London, Zurich, Gstaad, Monaco, Venice, Miami, New York, Tokyo and Dubai.
Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.
- Leonardo da Vinci
My intention in art is to give people a brief respite, time to pause for a moment, to enable them to see once again how beautiful life and the natural world are and our connection with Mother Earth. Then we all are connected and we all are the one: Nature, Animals and Humans. So my another favorite quote is from Albert Einstein - “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. “
