Marina Venediktova (b. 1974) is a Russian artist, from the city of Kazan. Her father is a professional artist and designer. It is difficult for Marina to track the moment in the past when painting first captured her attention, apparently it was from the first days of her life . Marina always studied with her father, and then later graduated from an art school in the city of Kazan. ln 2007 Marina moved to St. Petersburg and practised for many years in private workshops with artists from the Art Academy of St. Petersburg.
In tandem with her art education, Marina also graduated from the Academy of Astrology, and has a large practice of consulting clients. Over the course of six years astrology has given her a unique accent in her paintings, and inspired her to taking a new stage in her artwork. Now she does not just look at the world, at people, she views them with her own eyes, she sees the uniqueness of each person, each soul, even if it is an inanimate object. But words are too stingy to describe it in full, so Marina has chosen her own language - the language of canvas and paint.
