About Natalka

Natalka Liber Stephenson is an artist from London, working currently in Ramsgate.

Her work is multidisciplinary, though drawing is the dominant factor in her practise. Natalka exposes and explores lost memories and internal worlds through repetitive drawing and interpreting sensations of estrangement, anxiety, reality, fantasy and human behavior or function. She utilises dream-imagery and casts an uncanny lens over day-to-day objects, observations and interactions. Recent work has manifested a series of chalk-pastel works on paper, featuring Monstrous Kites.

Educated at the Royal College of Art, Natalka studied Visual Communication and received the Augustus Martin Award for Printmaking. In December 2020 she featured in ‘Both Keen’, a collaborative exhibition with Florence Shaw, at The Coleman Project Space in Bermondsey, London. This featured an installation of large-scale sculptural pieces, film and writing all made by the two artists, in celebration of uninhibited play, through drawing and making.
