New Artistic Interpretations: Combining Digital Painting’s Vibrancy with Classical Music

NATASHA TYLOSKY after the rain-resize

By Camie Fenton

Natasha Tylosky moved to San Miguel at age 10 with her family and attended school here. She followed her passion for art to Mount Ida College in Boston to study Digital Art and Animation. Now back in San Miguel, she will introduce her artistic talent with pianist Emmanuel Rodriguez, a San Miguel native who studied piano with Martha García and then continued on to complete his musical studies at Bellas Artes National School of Arts in Mexico City. On Friday, September 8, they will share the energy and passion of youth as they present their collaborative “Light and Sound Digital Art Exhibition” at St. Paul’s parish hall.

Natasha’s work combines surrealism and magical realism. “San Miguel and Mexican culture have influenced my art deeply,” said Natasha. “My love of bright colors came from growing up here, and I frequently paint and animate characters that are inspired by Mexico. I’ve always been fascinated by Mexican folklore and pre-Colombian mythology.” Her style can be particularly seen in her soon-to-be-released “Alma” video game, a story about a Catrina who journeys through the levels of the Aztec underworld. A trailer can be viewed at “All my paintings are done using Photoshop, but they are still hand-painted in that I use a digital pen on a touch screen to paint,” continued Natasha. “This allows me to have much cleaner paintings. For this exhibition, I will focus on two-dimensional art rather than my animations.”

In this special digital art and musical collaboration, Emmanuel says he will play interpretations from classical composers Beethoven, Chopin, and Mozart. “I will capture the composer’s emotions through selected pieces. This will harmonize with Natasha’s work through the composer’s expression of vibrancy and passion. While the composers are known as ‘classical,’ their music is always contemporary in its vitality, so I will be expressing the ‘joie de vivre’ found in Natasha’s luminous works through my love of piano.”

Each of the young artists has immediate goals. Natasha says, “Speaking of Turquesa Studios, my goal is to start my own animation studios under the name Turquesa Studios. I’m hoping to use Alma as a launching point for that studio and am currently looking for animators and marketers to collaborate with.”

Emmanuel, who has been playing piano since age three, commented, “In the next six months and throughout the coming year I hope to perform several piano concerts as well as to share my musical knowledge with many people through digital piano courses online. And of course to work in musical interpretation for Natasha’s upcoming Turquesa Studios.”
