BIO
Natalia Berglund is a multidisciplinary visual artist who works in a variety of different mediums, with a primary focus on portraiture that builds upon Orthodox iconography. Drawing parallels between the high drama of ancient Russian icons and more contemporary representations of women in the media, Natalia’s work explores the tension inherent in modern ideals of femininity.
At once both rejecting and embracing traditional religious portraiture, her current work is sensual, powerful and unafraid to challenge both Russian and American ideals of what it means to be a woman. 
Hailing from Minsk, Belarus, and educated in the United States (where she currently resides) Natalia is in a unique position to parse the differences between East and West. Her first solo exhibition, “Faces of Change” is currently on display at the Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
