My name is Tatiana Dzhus. My name in Russian sounds like "Juice", so I chose my own creative pseudonym "Tatyana Juice". I live and work in Russia, in St. Petersburg. Graduated from the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. Repin (drawing classes). I work in various techniques and genres. The theme of nature in a realistic manner of performance and portrait genre is closest to me. I am a repeated finalist and winner of the international contest "Portretisto. The Great Masters of the Portrait. " I am the winner of the international competition "THE BEST ARTISTS OF 2017 - AMERICAN ART AWARDS". As an artist I am inspired by nature, cinema, theater, literature and of course the person himself. It is important for me to convey on my canvas to the audience my vision of this world, to try to convey the nature of man, his deep essence, emotions. My works are in private collections at home and abroad.
With my work "The fragile common house" I try to tell people how fragile and beautiful this world is. Everything in him is alive, both the Cosmos and the Earth. Everything is created for the happiness of Man. By our thoughtless actions, we can destroy this World. And only by joint efforts - to save.
Forgetting Love, betraying the Creator
In a crazy race of being
We are destroying our fragile house,
And with him myself.

I started my artist career at young age, but get educated only at the end of the school. During university period I’ve inspired by human portraits, trying to imprint energy and soul onto the canvas. That became my favourite thing which I still lovely do for the last 10 years. Now i’m experimenting with different colours and techniques. The most portraits are made with яpastel on the paper and are on private collections around Russian Federation and other countries.
I usually draw people who have eyes closed. That’s a moment of pure feeling concentration. Each human have unique energy, which I aim to bring into my art and show it to the world. The feel of love is the main sense of my creation and life, that’s my inspiration and endless fuel engine. Working with heart and soul creates an infinite beauty. That’s the art.
