“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul,” Valentina says, quoting Wassily Kandinsky.
Since Val discovered the Science of Color Therapy she continuously experiments with the healing power of colors. She realized on a deeper level the influence of colors on the lives quality.
“As for today, I use that knowledge in my paintings. Working on it I convey an emotional surge and sense of color. We know since ancient times that properly balanced colors have a mysterious effect on the human psycho-emotional state, improve our health and mood. So, I inlay the knowledge of how colors can transform a person’s life in every brushstroke. The correctly selected artwork has a permanent meditative effect which definitely will help you to find a balance and state of mind,” Valentina says.
Valentina loves to draw since early childhood. While she studied at the Art School, she was sure that creativity will always be a vital part of her life. Later she studied Interior Design where her favorite subjects were painting and art history. The mesmerizing artworks of Salvador Dali, George Braque, Amadeo Modigliani, Piet Mondrian, and Kandinsky had an indelible impact on her. Their artworks influenced more her perception of color than of style. It is harmoniously balanced both in color scheme and emotional components.
Val has a passion for traveling, as she considers it the best means for inspiration.
She was born in a small town in the place known as Bessarabia, and
from a young age, she moved from one place to another, gained experience, absorbing the charms of each of them.
At the age of 18, while her family lived in Israel, she moved to Russia, where she continued to study, meet other young artists, and share her experience.
For several years she lived in the foothills of the Caucasus on the shore of the Black Sea.
She traveled a lot and was inspired by the culture of different peoples.
Indelible impressions were received during a traveling through India where she dived into the riot of colors of the wild east. She traveled around Mexico and Guatemala exploring traditional Aztec and Mayan ornament. Great!
“I love to create something new, to experiment with styles and shapes, colors and textures. I observe how it influences the other people,” Valentina says.
For quite a long period, her choice was on soft pastels, it was a very bright wave in her life, the results were pleasing. Val started working on graphics, precise clear lines, and dot-work. This process absorbed her completely, but she didn’t want to stop there either.
Since 2017, Val lives and creates in the US. Along with the moving, acrylic paints and large canvases came into her life.
“It is like different poles of my nature, on the one hand, it is black and white graphics, clear lines and the smallest details, and on the other hand it is a colorful self-expression,” Valentina says.
