Heatherleys Portrait Diploma Graduate Natalia Glinoer wins The Michael Harding Award at The Royal Society of British Artists at the Mall Galleries
Heatherleys graduate Natalia Glinoer (Diploma in Portraiture, 2021) has won The Michael Harding Award from the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) for her painting, ‘In the Artist’s Studio’. The painting depicts her friend from Brighton in a roommate’s studio. Natalia work is very intuitive, often dealing with intense emotions. Her work is “heavily influenced by the highly emotionally charged portraits by Kathe Kollwitz, Andrew Wyeth, Victor Wang’s contemporary use of paint and Michelangelo’s sculptures as well as the natural world”.
The painting was selected for the RBA 200th Anniversary Exhibition at Mall Galleries. The exhibition is a showcase for emerging artists and established member artists.
Natalia Glinoer is an artist based in Brighton. She studied at City and Guilds of London Art school, 2014-2016 and at The Heatherley School of Fine Art, 2018-2021. In 2017, Natalia won the RBA Rome Scholarship. She travelled to Rome for one month, studying the high renaissance, baroque paintings and sculptures that inspire her current work. She has and continues to work on private commissions.
Natalia has exhibited across the UK, notably at the Green and Stone Gallery, The Royal Society of British Artists, New English Art Club, ING Discerning Eye and The Society of Women Artists at the Mall Galleries.
