Tania, (Tetiana) Iukhymets was born in Kiev, Ukraine. After graduating from Kiev State Academy of Fine Arts, Tania spent years developing her own style of painting that has been influenced in large part by the French impressionists.
In recent years, TaniaIukhymets has collaborated with her husbandSlava Yasnopolsky (also from the Ukraine) to create unique three-dimensional art sculpturesin "reverse perspective". These opticalillusions move with the viewer and trick the viewer to thinking they can move furtherinto the painting. Together, TetianaIukhymets andSlavaYsnopolsky create opticalillusions under the artist name TISY (a combination of theirinitials).
With numerous commissions and countless works sold, Tania established herself as one of the most respected and collected artists in Eastern Europe.
