Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Philadelphia transplant from Oklahoma City, OK. Although being the daughter of a beautiful fine artist, she didn't discover her own artistic talent until late in her high school career. She then moved to the east coast where she graduated from the University of the Arts in 2007 with a BFA and a concentration in Illustration. Since then, Tatyana has worked as a freelance illustrator and an exhibiting artist - having her work published in numerous magazines including two.one.five magazine and Beyond Race - and a having her work shown in a number of Philadelphia art galleries. For the historic inauguration in January 2009, Tatyana was included in the official inauguration exhibit, Manifest Hope:DC, showing her work among artists such as Shepard Fairey and Ron English. Her work has slowly been gaining attention from people across the country. She currently lives and works in Philadelphia and says that her goals are to simply become a great artist and, then, be recognized for her art.
