Sts. Alipij & Andrei Rublev Icon Studio

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ

The Icon Studio was established by Fr. Protodeacon Nazari Polataiko and Matushka Tatiana in 1996. The icon painters of the studio are dedicated to reviving this ancient art. Fr. Protodeacon Nazari & Matushka Tatiana of Sts Alipij & Andrew Rublew Icon Studio were born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine . Fr. Nazari in 1971 and Matushka in 1970. They both graduated with B.F.A degrees - Fr. Nazari from Kosiv and Matuska from Vyznytcia Art College in Ukraine. Fr. Nazari studied basics of iconography by copying antique icons from his father’s collection and visiting the renowned iconographer, Archimandrite Zinon, in Pskov. Later he leaned advanced iconographic technique from Dmitri Andreyev, of Prosopon School in New York, and by visiting iconography studios all over Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. Protodeacon Nazari shares his discoveries with his wife and, together, they have been writing icons for almost 15 years. Their work can be seen in several churches in Ukraine, numerous churches across Canada and the USA. They can also be found in private chapels of His All Holiness Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew, Metropolitan Volodymyr of Kyiv, Ukraine, and Metropolitan Wasylij of Winnipeg (of blessed memory). The icons from this studio are written in a Russo-Byzantine style, all written in egg tempera and gold leaf, using traditional materials and techniques. The most recent large projects include: decorating the dome of St. George's Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Dauphin, MB, a series of icons of Ukrainian Saints (ongoing project), and an iconostas for Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Speden, AB. Most recently Fr. Nazari and Matushka completed work on the iconostas of St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Church Vegreville, AB.
