Kate Blagodatskikh is an artist from Moscow, Russia. In 2021 she graduated with honors specializing in graphic design. She works with mixed media, but her favorite medium that she uses are watercolor, oil, pastel, and digital. Her creativity is one of the ways of unobtrusive communication with the world, a form of meditation. Art for her is an opportunity to break out of routine, an opportunity for joy, an opportunity for experiences, an opportunity to look and see a little differently, this is an attempt to convey moods and sensations, elusive and inexpressible vibes.
