margMargarita Alexandrovna Kolobova (1983, St. Petersburg Russia)

Margarita Kolobova was born in 1983 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. From 2000 till 2005 she studied in Rostov-on-Don College of Fine Arts (named after M.B.Grekov) and graduated from it with honors. She worked as a designer and illustrator of "Donskaya Arkheologia" journal and its web-site. She also worked as an artifact illustrator on several archaeological projects. In 2006 Margarita entered St. Petersburg Repin State Academic Institute of Painting Sculpture and Architecture (Academy of Arts) to study painting. Margarita graduated from it in the summer of 2014, again with honors. She devoted her diploma to Karelian-Finnish epos "Kalevala".

In 2013 Margarita did an Internship in Fine Arts at the Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Finland. "I had a solo exhibition "Mosaics of Kalevala" in Finland, in Kuhmo city. It was organized by Juminkeko Foundation. The foundation itself is devoted to preservation and popularization of Karelian epos "Kalevala". As for me, Kalevala was my favorite book from childhood. When I had to choose a theme for my diploma project, I chose Kalevala. But before settling down to the diploma itself, I worked on this theme. I visited museums of Finland, studied ethnographic materials, old photos of Finnish singers - exponents of Kalevala runes. As a result of this work I had a series of paintings and drawings devoted to Kalevala itself and to the singers of Kalevala runes. These art works were set out in my solo exhibition in Kuhmo."

"Tauride Garden, St. Petersburg""Tauride Garden, St. Petersburg" FramedIt was my first solo exhibition. It had a good success; there were some benevolent articles in the newspapers and Internet, and some paintings were sold. I was so involved in Finnish epos and culture that I spent autumn, winter and spring 2013/2014 in Finland, in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, I studied in an internship program in the Fine Arts faculty there". ~ Margarita Kolobova

Now Margarita migrates between St. Petersburg, her home town, and Imatra Finland where she attends the Fine Arts Facility of Saimaa University of Applied Science currently studying sculpture. "I like to study" says Margarita. "I work on plein-air paintings in both countries"

Margarita is a follower of a realist school in art. Her works are exhibited at the State Art Museum in Stary Oskol, Russia; at the Juminkeko Foundation in Finland and in private collections in Russia, the United States and abroad.
