Tanya Solonyka is an artist working out of Toronto Canada. She enjoys creating a slightly altered view on reality and is often inspired by the human psyche; especially that of women. To her the women figure is very multifaceted with incredible depth and layers. She is fascinated by their strength of character as well as their vulnerability. In her work she often explores different themes celebrating the woman figure, capturing the subtle ways emotion can be portrayed.
Her first artistic love growing up was photography. She was largely inspired by the work of Duane Michals. His ability to shift ones perspective, through the lens, greatly moved her to experiment with her own ideas. He made her realize that reality is not always what you see in front of you but what you see with your mind’s eye
Tanya's work has been shown both nationally and internationally.
