Artwork Spotlight: Natalia Zourabova

In today’s artwork spotlight we’re featuring a new painting by Natalia Zourabova, whose works we’ve included in our recent commercial art advisory project for Rothschild 48 Hotel & Garden. Zourabova is primarily a figurative painter and paints from observation. In her work she recreates scenes she is intimately familiar with, like the streets of her Tel Aviv neighborhood, or home interiors. Color is central in Zourabova’s work; her palette and the mood of her paintings range from naturalistic to absurd, and her paintings vary along the spectrum from realism to abstraction.

Natalia Zourabova, Playground, 2022, Oil on canvas, 23.6 x 31.5 inches / 60 x 80 cm

In the painting “Playground” 2022, Zourabova painted the playground under her Jaffa home, where she has lived for the past decade.
Zourabova told Art Source: “I pass by it every day, and always had a strange relationship with it. Its bizarre form both attracted and repulsed me at the same time.
In the winter of 2022, I went outside to paint. It was a gray day and nobody was playing in the playground. I’ve always wanted to paint this monster so I immediately started working. When I was painting, children arrived and began playing inside the structure.
I’ve been working for a few hours when all of a sudden an elderly gentleman approached me and said “don’t stand there, the building is falling apart and a piece might fall off and hit you”.
I looked up and saw that he was right. That’s how this painting came about. I was glad I didn’t look up beforehand, so I had the time to finish it!”
