Savenkova Viktoria

Contemporary Figurative Artist

Short bio

The professional artist's journey began at a young age in an art studio and continued through art school and college with the highest honors, ultimately leading to a degree from the Academy of Art in 2003.

In 2014, the artist returned to painting and focused on creating large-scale psychological portraits and figure studies.


The artist's work delves into the inner world and invites the viewer to join her in exploring the 'unfinished stories' she portrays. Through her paintings, the artist presents her concept of beauty, filled with emotion, drama, and sensuality.


Through the works, I hope to inspire the viewers to reflect on their own thoughts and feelings and to consider the weakness and the strength of those around them.


It is a deep dive into our own inner world and the people around us and how they experience the global changes that shape our world.


Whether it's the political and social upheaval of recent years, the challenges of personal relationships and self-acceptance.


The paintings meant to evoke a sense of unease in the viewer. I want to draw the viewer into a deeper level of contemplation or self-reflection. Ultimately, the meaning and message of the artwork will depend on the individual viewer's interpretation and response to it.


Two portraits are part of the permanent collection of the European Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona (MEAM - Barcelona).
