Natalia Kapchuk

Natalia Kapchuk is dually based between Dubai (UAE) and London (UK). Early in her childhood, she took a particular interest in the arts, as she started her career making small ceramic sculptures at the young age of six. Inspired by her mother, an artist and sculptor herself, Kapchuk gradually learned the basics of sculpting ceramics. Naturally, art school became the next stage in this developing artist’s progression,where she studied art history, drawing, painting, and composition. Broadening her interests, Kapchuk later studied

foreign languages and international politics, receiving a Bachelor’s degree from Ural State University in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

To further her education within the arts, Kapchuk completed additional courses at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 2017, followed by The Chelsea College of Arts in London, UK. Favoring the technique of mixed-media assemblage, Natalia is known to construct her works with a combination of mediums, often featuring reclaimed, natural, and industrially resourced materials such as tree bark, sand, natural stones, clothe, fermented moss, polymers, resi-crete, gilding, metal chips, plastic, etc. Gathering inspiration from the wonders of nature, Natalia Kapchuk explores the world, paying close attention to pressing global issues like environmental concerns caused by anthropogenic impacts. These

observations have a heavy influence on her creative approach and aesthetic. Kapchuk is an ambassador at The Parliamentary Society of Arts, Fashion and Sports (UK), an ambassador for the Better World Fund (BWF), and a philanthropist supporting charities and organizations dedicated to protecting the lands and oceans of the world.
