Ekaterina Popova is an award-winning artist born in Russia, known mostly for her original oil paintings of interiors. Ekaterina received a Bachelor’s in Fine Art from Kutztown University in 2011 and since then has been exhibiting her work internationally.

She is interested in expressive work exploring mood and emotion and is influenced by post-impressionism, fauvism, and magical realism, which has enabled her to examine the subject of home, place, belonging, and identity over the past decade.

Her work has been exhibited internationally, including at Cohle Gallery in Paris and Menorca, The Painting Center in New York, James Oliver Gallery, Decorazon Gallery, Affordable Art Fair, Art Miami Fairs, The Trenton City Museum, Paradigm Gallery, Delaware Contemporary, The Boxheart Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery, and more.

Popova has been featured in multiple blogs and publications, including Colossal, Beautiful Bizarre, American Art Collector, The Jealous Curator, DPI Magazine, Friend of The Artist, Iceview, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Ekaterina attended several residencies, including at Centre Pompadour in Abbeville, France, NES Residency in Iceland, and the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts in Greece.

She works out of her rustic factory studio at 1241 Carpenter Street Studios in Philadelphia.

Artist Statement

For the past few years, I have been exploring interiors in my work. The interest started as a way for me to reflect on my upbringing in Russia but eventually progressed to exploring the overall idea of “home” and what it means to me now. The work has slowly evolved from being reflective and sentimental to being mindful and present in my current environment.

I repeatedly paint my own bedroom, visit other people’s houses, and use reference photos submitted to me by others online.

My paintings include messy rooms, intimate items, and objects that refer to human presence without including the figure. I pick up on the subtle tones, lighting, and mood of each location in order to capture the emotion I associate with the space and then exaggerate the color to create a dream-like image.
