The young Russian artist of Armenian origins has developed her unique approach to the depiction of nature and animals. Ter-Balyan’s has gone through many changes and transformations – she often experiments with different techniques. The artist claims she has found her own philosophy of art – her paintings are full of positive energy, reassuring optimism and deep psychologism. Every work by Edita Ter-Balyan is a strong and inspiring attempt to re-establish the connection between humans and nature. The artist finds her way to express the most indicative characteristics of animals. Her style is intimate and gentle and she makes the viewer find an individual contact with every painted beast and bird. Although her touching characters are completed in realistic manner, they also remind the magical beasts of old fairy tales – seems that the bears and birds are just about to speak.

Although the artist uses both pastel and oil paint, her colour palette is soft and gentle and every painting feels like a gulp of fresh air.
