I was born 01/10/1988 in Samara city, Russia. In 2010 I graduated Samara State Economic University (SSEU), Institute of Economic Theory and International Economic Relations, specialty – “Security market specialist”, with high honors. In the same year I graduated Samara State Pedagogical University, specialty “Interpreter in professional communication sphere”, with high honors. So I was so far from art as a main mission those years but it definitely glew in the corners of my soul. As often as I had a free time I always was spending it making white & black sketches and made a first steps in portraying. In 2010 I moved in Saint-Petersburg, where I am still living. And I think this defined the role of art to me, this hobby became essential and necessary part of my expression. I paint for 7 years, mainly using oil on canvas, also mastered the technique of working with acrylic, textured paste, gilding; took a participation in many virtual exhibition and galleries.
The main interest in painting for me: to depict people, their spiritual connection with their inner and outer world; to deduce their peak of emotions through the bends of bodies, in motion and fading. I often accompanies my artworks with poetry of own composition. For me, the process of painting is primarily interactive, is the unity of three components: my soul, model or object and canvas. It is their successful interaction that gives birth to the real piece of art.
My artwork "Space mystery" was inspired with the beauty of our Earth, of inscrutability of our Universe, where sky is the main conductor between human world and "that" incomprehensible and so little explored world full of magic and secrets. What happens if it will be united? Let's become creators instead of destroying and live in piece and harmony.
Evening and morning sky always attracted my attention, but the last 3 years I try to transfer my impressions on the canvas. I work at the plein air, most of the work done at my house. However, such work is" Dragon dawn". Evening stormy sky was transformed in the eyes, eyes could capture detail and hand work itself-the result you see. I've been doing fine arts since I was a kid. I have a higher art education. I am a member of the international Association of arts-AIAP UNESCO. I work in different techniques: oil painting, easel graphics, printed graphics, snow sculpture, etc. Works are in private collections in Russia, Canada, Norway, etc.
My name is Kuntsevich Victoria. I am an artist and a graphic designer. I'm taking pictures on a film camera. I was born in 1983 in Tuapse, Russia. In 2004 I finished the design of the environment at the Art College in Krasnodar. Since then I worked as an illustrator. Most of the time I'm a freelancer. My last project was to create branded leather accessories and clothes with hand-made designer painting. In addition to commercial projects, I am very involved in art in its different manifestations.
