“When I look back at my life and think about what used to unite me and the visual arts, I can only remember winning the regional competition in 2000 for the best political poster. There, a cute chicken brought me a certificate with 1 seat and a box of chocolates. But with the end of school, the roads of fine arts and mine parted. Moreover, I would not even say that I was especially interested in paintings and had a talent for creating them.
However, my life has always been permeated with creativity. 15 years of theatrical experience of the actress taught me to feel and open up, accept myself and laugh at the sad, not be afraid to be different and make mistakes, look for depth and essence, and not decorate the surface. In the end, it made a big contribution to my development as an artist. And so, in the summer of 2018, during an evening run, a plot appeared in my head that I wanted to draw. And although I did not know how to implement it, I decided to try it. Therefore, an hour later I was sitting with a simple pencil in my hands, depicting what I had invented. And the very next day brushes, oil and canvas appeared. They were followed by palette knife, easels, lessons, more and more new paintings, projects, exhibitions. Life is very unpredictable and interesting. You never know for sure where it will lead you. But in order for this path to be bright and full, every day I learn to see beauty, feel, love and live. This is what I talk about in my paintings. " - says CHEPURNA.

The artistic practice of Nina Murashkina is sensual and metaphorical, built on her own sexuality and empirical knowledge of herself. The author summarizes the intimate experience and through vivid feminine images reproduces his vision of a woman. Women with ambiguous and discredited positioning today are the Goddesses: both strong and weak, possessing snake flexibility and acute sensuality, rational aspiration and irrational doubt, one that knows how to obey, but more often conquers. She lives an endless pursuit of harmony of all her essences.
Murashkina is inseparable from the heroines, her stories are stories of her own experience and metaphorical self-portraits.
