Victoria Kovalenchikova’s artworks are an outlook at the transformation of the world surrounding us; a shout in the cold infinity of cosmos. It is an attempt to understand the impact of people on the planet through the language of art.
The contemporary trend in her paintings is characterized by a figurative integration of abstract elements. Creatively mixing media from cement, resin, acrylic and epoxy on stretched canvas, Victoria’s work is simultaneously sculptural and painting.
The surface of this textural 16 inch tall by 21 inch wide artwork is covered with a shiny layer of clear, glass-like resin, which enhances the colors and adds depth. The sculptural, blue and green elements protrude beyond the smoother, parts of the artwork. The sides are finished as a continuation of the front, creating more layers and detailing. It is signed, titled and dated on back by the artist. It does not require framing and is wired and ready to hang. Free delivery within Los Angeles area.

Victoria Kovalenchikova was born in Mogilev, Belarus in 1978 and in 2002 she received a degree from Belarusian State Academy of Arts.
Kovalenchikova is inspired by the connection between all humans, and in her series, “Earth,” she explores the planet as a work of art. Using google images to explore the Earth in its entirety, she plays with angles and textures. An earlier series focused on the tightly zoomed in areas of urban cities, and the “Earth” series is the antithesis of this micro exploration.
Kovalenchikova states, “Although we humans may feel like disconnected, independent fragments, Earth reminds us that we are all united on this place: notes within a larger symphony of life. No different from the massive whale in the ocean or the tiniest needle of a pine tree. There is no way out; to save ourselves we must save our home”
