American Icon Awards is a philanthropic organization with its annual gala attracting an international media audience. In 2019 Tatyana was commissioned to paint portraits of nominees – Al Pacino, Evander Holyfield, Robert DeNiro and Quincy Jones.

This large 4 x 5 foot acrylic painting is vibrant and dynamic with powerful composition and energy. The torso of this boxer is imposing, confident and ready for battle. Measuring 5 feet tall, it makes a statement of Holyfield’s undisputed status as a world champion. Dramatic combinations of reds, greens and gold escalate tension, with red paint dripping down hints at the the combative nature of boxing. The gold halo reminiscent to the Italian Renaissance icons symbolizes athletes desire for excellence and determination to win. As a devout Christian, Holyfield’s key to success has been his faith. “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13, his favorite Bible verse is written in gold.

About Evander Holyfield

Evander Holyfield is a boxing legend and a true American icon. Nicknamed “The Real Deal”, he is the only four-time world heavyweight champion and remembered in connection with Mike Tyson, for their epic infamous fight in 1997. He reigned as the undisputed champion at cruiserweight in the late 1980s and at heavyweight in the early 1990s, and remains the only boxer in history to win the undisputed championship in two weight classes. Holyfield is the only four-time world heavyweight champion, having held the unified WBA, WBC, and IBF titles from 1990 to 1992; the WBA and IBF titles again from 1993 to 1994 and between 1996 and 1999; and the WBA title for a fourth time from 2000 to 2001.

I love how fast & furious this piece came to life! It went like a boxing match, rapid, bold, decisive and strong. Running out of time, I’ve decided to use acrylics. I wanted to convey the intensity of the fight with the power of color and light. Using drips of red paint rolling down the canvas added a dramatic effect, pointing to his partially bitten-off ear.”

I love Tatyana’s art she is a wonderful artist. Her paintings are not only passionate, but the handmade quality is the best I’ve seen.

Tatyana painted a magnificent portrait of Abraham Lincoln for me. It’s truly the best Lincoln I’ve seen. Lincoln jumps off the linen canvas and the oil blend of color is superb. I would recommend Tatyana’s gallery in Laguna Beach to any art lover!

Painting Process

As a classically trained painter, Tatyana’s Contemporary Realism work has been inspired by the Old Masters. She was fortunate to learn directly from the great masters making replicas of the World’s Greatest Works of art at the National Gallery of Art Washington, DC.  Since, Tatyana has developed her own modern painting technique, with skillful glazing, giving her large scale oil paintings luminosity and depth of color.

Tatyana’s creative process is fluid and intuitive, up until the last moment, everything could change.  A prolific painter, similar to her master teachers, Tatyana has many paintings in progress, waiting for the inspiration to progress to the next step. She works methodically, but passionately, not settling until it feels perfect, some paintings taking years to complete. As an Artist, Tatyana’s main focus is to produce art distinguished by quality and strong energy.




Tatyana uses various natural materials and precious gemstones in her original oil and acrylic paintings to create stunning texture and light effects.
