Margarita Katchan was born in a small town in Belarus in 1960. She graduated from art school in 1980 concurrently with receiving her degree in economics from the Belorussian state university. In the early 90s during the political turbulence in the former Soviet countries her family was forced to flee from their home and seek political asylum in Denmark. She started her life from scratch : a new country, another language, a different mentality. In 2010, after a serious illness, Margarita resumed her painting. She writes with acrylics and oils. She lives with thoughts about unwritten paintings, their storylines. Everywhere and in everything she is able to see freakish vibrations of paint, nuances of light, plans of composition. She is painting and learning. At the same time Margarita is involved in running a private art gallery and organising exhibitions of artists from Belarus and other post-sovietic countries.Margarita is one of the original modern painters who are independent in their search for forms and in the assertion of their individual artistic worldview and expression. In her works can be felt an explosive energy, can be heard the music of colour – sometimes brightly magnificent, sometimes exquisitely refined and some piercingly tragic.As an artist with the freedom to be true to oneself, Margarita invariably seeks for an outlet of emotions through the brightness of colours in her work.
Margarita started exhibiting her work in 2015. First in private galleries around Denmark and subsequently on an international scale, with her latest exhibition at the Coloraida gallery in Lisbon.
