Thinking About Future, pencil drawing, 2

Originally from South Urals in Russia, Nina Tokhtaman Valetova is New York based american-russian artist. Holding Master's degree  in Art from University BGPU in Ufa, she has been working as a painter since 1982.

Nina's works explore the  relationship  between ancient cultures, mythologies,  fantasy,

metaphysics and philosophy.

 Her paintings and drawings cannot be driven into a certain framework of definitions and stamps. In general, Nina's art does not fall into the one category and style. Often each piece is created in several styles. This may be a combination of surrealism, geometric style, suprematism, surrealism with abstract and figurative arts.
Searching new way in creating art, Nina establishes Synthesis Art Style in contemporary art, - combination of suprematism, surrealism, cubism with abstract and figurative arts.
