In case you haven’t been paying attention, The Pompadour Gallery at Salon X is fast becoming the place in Taos to see cutting edge, new art by young, up and coming artists.
Thanks to the Gallery’s (relatively) new Curator, Alan Vedder (of Vanilla Pop fame), the shows change regularly, allowing several artists to exhibit their work at the Gallery annually. A good thing, considering the abundance of creatives living and/or working here in Taos!
Tomorrow (Friday, March 18th) Tatjana Krizmaniac will have a show of new work opening at The Pompadour from 5 – 7pm.
Born in Zagreb, Tatjana began painting at age fourteen. After studying at the University of Zagreb, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she completed her studies at Georgetown University. Over the next decade she quietly created paintings for friends and patrons, while working as an art director.
Known for her pastel drawings and oil paintings, depicting ordinary life with a distinctly European sensibility. Surreal yet rooted in the every day, with their swirling perspectives and brilliantly saturated colour, Krizmanic’s canvases are informed by her influences; Chagall, Matisse, Klimt, Picasso – the artists who inspired her from the start.
Since her first exhibit in Boulder, Colorado, she has built a strong following, and her paintings are in numerous private collections and museums. Her work is shown in galleries in United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.
Krizmanic divides her time between her home on the Adriatic coast of Croatia and Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Colorado and New Mexico.
Tatjana blogs too, and the link is included below this post along with her website and info about The Pompadour Gallery at Salon X.
