Snow: Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki
January 30 - April 8, 2019
District Foyer Gallery

Snow presents a body of work by Canadian artist, Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki, exploring the awe-inspiring landscapes of British Columbia during the winter months.

Tatjana is a landscape painter based in Port Moody, British Columbia, where she emigrated from Serbia in 1994. Although her childhood was filled with drawing, the challenging reality of her native country made her choose an education in science. She graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and pursued a career in the high-tech industry. As soon as she settled in Canada, she embraced visual arts.

The natural landscape has enchanted Tatjana ever since she arrived in Canada in 1994. The journey of these paintings begins with an immersion in nature, where she hikes up mountains, walks through forests, or beach combs in secluded coves. While there, Tatjana documents these journeys, taking photographs and making sketches. Back in the studio, she uses acrylic paint to concoct chromatic mixtures and organic forms, capturing the awe-inspiring scenes found in the great Canadian outdoors.

Tatjana is a Past President, a Senior Signature Artist (SFCA) and an Honorable Lifetime Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her paintings have been exhibited, collected and represented by art galleries since 2005.
