Tatiana Plakhova, a 29-year old artist from Moscow, makes music visible by creating amazing graphic patterns. Flowers, fountains or finely weaved templates – whatever you recognize in her art, it is true. We sat her down for a short Q & A to see where she comes from and how it all started. Obviously, the Russian beauty is inspired by music. Who wouldn’t be?
When did you have the idea to do graphic patterns?
It’s not like it was an idea that just popped into my head. I just can’t stop. I’m making patterns with everything. It’s like a game.
What programs do you use?
I use usual Adobe software, Illustrator mostly.
Do you have any exhibitions coming up?
Well, we are planning to make next exhibition in Rio with my Brazil friends, hope it’s going to be nice!
Have you worked for any commercial brands?
Yes, I worked with Procter & Gamble for some time, Playboy USA, Wired Magazine UK, 33 across USA, and for many Russians brands.
What do you hope to accomplish as an artist?
I hope for success and freedom for my creative ideas! Because when you are working as a designer only, it’s not easy to be creatively free.
Can people buy your art?
Yes, it is now possible to buy prints or screen wallpapers at Creative Bazaar and some exclusively in galleries.
