Victoria Fomina

Victoria Fomina

Hometown: Kerch

Based in: Antalya

Victoria was born in a small town on the coast of the Black Sea, situated among vineyards and gorgeous ruins of ancient Greek and Roman settlements. She graduated from the College of Architecture, but the magical power of painting and graphics has become her passion.

Victoria Fomina’s paintings make viewers want to jump down the rabbit hole with her into a charmingly surreal world of detail and colour, crafted in the artist’s unique style. No detail is too small as she explores new visual metaphors, adding value to the projects she works on.

She works with watercolour, gouache and acrylic – fluid media that allow for great spontaneity. Victoria works for clients around the world as an illustrator (including Gallimard Jeunesse, Penguin Random House, Kingfisher, Rizzoli, Grimm Press, Samsung and Vogue).

She has taken part in exhibitions in Slovakia, Switzerland, Russia, Italy, Japan, Estonia, France, Norway, Germany, United Kingdom, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Poland and Hungary.

More About Victoria Fomina

IconInspires

What inspires you?

As a child, I adored diving in the waves and looking for shards of ancient red-figured vases. I liked to draw columns and arches of antique architecture and read old legends and myths. Books and architecture became intertwined in my life.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

well ornamented minimalism

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

I love "Beethoven - Fries" by Gustav Klimt in Secession building - there are many details and shining emptiness there. Masters of Secession in Vienna - Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos, Joseph Hofman have made enormous impact on development of design and modern architecture.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

I like mountains very much, and also bright cities - Venice, Vienna, Prague, Rome, St. Petergurg, Siena.
