Was born in Georgia (USA), brought up in Europe, and studied art at Yale University. Talent is an intrinsic part of her DNA, thanks to her father – the prestigious international artist of Slovenian origin, Bruno Zupan – and her beautiful mother, Jane. Natasha lives in Valldemossa in a stone house, with an eclectically decorated interior, which she purchased from the Swarovski family. After numerous exhibitions in Boston, California, Milan, Stockholm and New York – attracting celebrities like Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Claudia Schiffer – the artist has been featured in the Italian ‘Vanity Fair’ magazine and acted as muse for the famous fashion label Larusmiani, as well as being commissioned by Mattel to produce a painting about Barbie, to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Natasha Zupan's work juxtaposes emotion, reflection, shadows, light, time, images and abstractions in a confrontation between traditional representation and contemporary subjectivities. She manipulates and interweaves concepts of time. Time, past and future are united in a perpetual possibility of change. Her work captures the resonances, and the echoes and reflection of conflict and evolution. Zupan's work is not about translating a world that already exists. It is about an entrance to a different universe.
