Painting Style and Inspiration
Viktoria combines oil and acrylic paints, often on wood panels. Her signature style of bold and expressive brush strokes over multiple opaque and transparent layers feature brillant, vibrant, and high-contrast colors. Viktoria’s gold gilding craftwork accentuates the value of her creations. Her semi-abstract style is inspired by natural landscapes – including figurative and representational elements. The conversations she has with extraordinary personalities deeply influence the energy of each piece of art.
Viktoria’s calling is to create bold artwork for people who wake up each morning with the intention to make a difference in our world – for people with strong visions and ambitious goals. An underlying theme Viktoria explores is the concept of success, visually conveying how people achieve success in their private and business lives.
