Galina Datloof was born to the harshness of post World War II Russia. Her formal education ended with her graduation from the Department of Fine Arts of the Ural Academy in the mid 70’s, although her true training began spontaneously as a young child in the wilderness of the Russian interior. Using scraps of paper and materials Datloof could be seen furiously arranging and rearranging patterns and designs, which at times were so abstract that it attracted the attention of the Soviet art institutions. Datloof names her teacher, Svetlana Shiskina, as her personal and professional mentor and has always felt indebted to Shiskina for cultivating in her a deep interest in the rich heritage of the Russian avant-garde. Under Shiskina’s protective wing Datloof burst on to the most progressive of the Russian art scenes. Her graduation project was published in the influential Soviet decor magazine “Decorative Art”. Almost from that point on her work became in demand the world over and after having reached many high points in the Soviet art world, she emigrated to Israel in 1990.
Datloof employs materials as diverse as ink, pencil, oil, and acrylic paints and mainly works in a textured canvas technique. Painting alone cannot express all of Datloof’s extreme emotions-the performing arts, including theatre, ballet, and circus are among the major artistic passions in her life. Her paintings titled, “The Dancer”, “Rigletto”, “Piano Concerto”, and “The Ballerinas” reflect her current obsession with music, dance, and theatre. Among the many influences are Chagall, Matisse, Modigliani, and Picasso.”
