About Near and Far

This collection of decorative oil paintings is steeped in symbolism and fantasy with a heavily stylized illustrative approach. Each piece having an individual narrative transports us into a world of fiction, mystery and escapism at its finest. She strives to fill her works with new meaning based on a spontaneous, unconsciously inspired image of realities that disobey the laws of spatial relations, proportions or perspective, she achieves this with the use of expressive lives, signs and texts.

Valentina’s signature esthetic is a result of her formal art education which began with combined foundations in painting and graphic design from The Academy of Belarus, recognized for its unique academic style of painting. Her empathically inspirational work evokes associative interpretation into a different realm.
