Born in Ukraine and based in Vienna, Austria, Victoria V has incorporated in her art practice influences of Eastern European aesthetics as well as Western approach. Interested in ancient symbols and mythology, she combines intuitive yet expressive manner with contemporary influences, planting Kandinsky’s and Itten’s theories on form and color impact.
Victoria’s figurative as well as abstract artworks explore the humans’ social boundaries along with personal ones, engaging concepts of trance, subconsciousness, sexuality, mystics and symbolism; while different media (acrylics, markers, collage, papier-mâché, ink etc.) used in her practice allow Victoria to create multidimensional textured original artworks with strong emotional vibes.

This artwork has a basis of my black-coloured body print, reminding about the alter-ego of a personality. The deep and intense colour palette depicts the zenith of love, when one might see almost all the facets of the partner, not only the light and positive side. The embracing gesture of the demonic wing features the partner's strive to be accepted in a full measure, while showing not only his/her bright side of personality, and the golden liquid in the right hand symbolises gratitude for the full acceptance.
