Tanya Rudka

Tanya Rudka was born in 1971 in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, Ukraine. She studied art in the Simferopol Children's art school and in the Crimean Art College named after N. S. Samokish. In 1994 she immigrated to Israel and settled down in a small town in the north of the country. In the last ten years, she decided to devote herself to a full time successful career as an artist.

In her works, Tanya likes to use geometric shapes, especially circles. With no beginning and no end, no sides or corners the circle represents eternity, vitality, unity and spirituality. The artist says that for her circles symbolize wholeness, perfection and good energies.


Tanya’s colorful trees with their circle-shaped tree crowns can also remind the viewer of mandala paintings, which originate from the Eastern religious practices (Buddhism, Hinduism), and especially the Mandala Tree. In Eastern religions mandala is used as a map representing deities or the model of the Universe. The Mandala Tree represents longevity, good fortune and security, blessings from nature, shelter and family stability. Being the equivalent of the Christian tree of life, it is said to be the source of human life and is associated with Mother Earth.


Tanya Rudka's technique is a unique process consisting of sprinkling paint to create the precise shapes of the flowers, splashing and dripping. Tanya often uses pastel colors, which give her feeling of calmness and freshness. According to the artist, her choice of colors is not a depiction of a particular season of the year. It is rather a representation of her mood and feelings at the time of creation of a specific piece. Tanya’s color palette is also influenced by the relationships between the colors within a certain color composition.


Tanya Rudka's artworks took part in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Israel, USA and lately also in the Far East, especially in China.
