Alena Vavilina

artist portfolio and statement 

Biography and inspiration:

Since childhood Alena Vavilina  (known under AV Art) was obsessed by art, she grew up in artistic environment, which later will be shown in her artworks.

Russian by birth, Alena Vavilina grew up in Moscow, European and Asian educated artist. School of Academic Art in Moscow gave AV the formal skills and knowledge about art. But it was only the beginning...

She has always been fascinated by the elements of nature and how this nature is represented in art by other cultures. To further explore this concept, she needed to rid herself of the perceptions of art, created by academic art lessons and other artists, and instead started to explore her own personal style. This style would represent her life experiences and would showcase a world without boundaries.

Most of her artworks are in the mixed media style. Such an interesting combination of media gives her an opportunity to create layering texture and unique style in her artwork. 

A key source of inspiration for Alena is Vincent Van Gogh, and his quote, “I dream my painting and then I paint my dream...” represents the verbal expression of her work.

The paintings of Alena Vavilina are a part of private art collections around the world.
