Yana Stajno - Artist

Welcome. Sep 21: Rising from the Rubble Headline

Welcome Back to my Galleries
and to my New Exhibition

It's been a while but we are celebrating 'Rising from the Rubble' at Yana's New Exhibition. Her exhibition venue is the reason for the title, since the Carlton Tavern, wilfully demolished by property developers, has risen once again. A group of fierce supporters of their local pub fought the developers and won! The people who knocked it down had to rebuild it exactly as it had been.

Welcome. Step 21: Carlton Tavern

It's also been a while since her last exhibition (why was that we wonder ...?) so Yana too is rising, phoenix-like, to delight us with a New Exhibition and you are warmly invited to her:

Exhibition Private View
Carlton Tavern
September 16th from 6.30-8.30pm
33 Carlton Vale
London NW6 5EU

To stay safe from Covid, the back doors are wide open, there is plenty of ventilation and a leafy outdoor space to sit in. The exhibition continues until 30th October.

Welcome. May 19: CEOS 19 Jane and Yana

'It is the moment before or just after something transformative has happened that interests me. I work initially from life, people, places, scenes I have witnessed. Sometimes the work remains a watercolour or a drawing. Often, I extend the subject into a big canvas in my North London studio. People seem to resonate with my work and my paintings are collected all over the world.'

‘Yana’s work reminds us of joy and pleasures in an increasingly dystopian society.’
Dr Anna Birch, artistic director of 'Fragments & Monuments.'

Yana's work in the community

Yana ran a free painting workshop in the old Post Office, Woodgreen, London. Below is a short video about the participants showing their work.
