Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Sometimes inside you something shrinks inside and it seems that there is no more strength. This is despair. I want to cry out loud, scream or shrink and cry silently. As if you cannot master this road! As if there are too many obstacles, little support and no one understands you. Or maybe this is despair from betrayal and you no longer believe that this path should be followed at all. BUT! Always look further! Remember why you have already walked so much! Remember yourself and your interests! And you will see the sun's rays and the pre-dawn sky ... In the distance ... There is always a goal behind despair!

Artist Profile

Born: 1987

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Moscow

Valeriya Avtukhova is a contemporary Russian artist born in 1987 in Tajikistan. As refugees, her family moved to Russia at the beginning of the Civil War in the republic. All her childhood Valeriya spent in the Russian countryside. She finished school with honors. She always loved to draw, but she didn't have an opportunity to study painting since there was no local art school.
In 2008, Valeria graduated from Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies with a major in financial management. She started her career in a design studio in an advertising agency as she always has got a good feeling of art. Then working for several large companies and banks as a top manager, she moved to Moscow where she finally bought her own apartment.
For 15 years, Valeria Avtukhova was the leader and co-author of youth projects at the Russian Youth Union. The projects covered the areas of leadership through revealing creative abilities. The artist believes that every child is talented and his gift must be discovered. Valeria was repeatedly awarded diplomas from the Ministry of Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy of the Russian Federation for her activity in those projects.
After the birth of her child, Valeria took up painting as a hobby. She completed a number of art courses and discovered that it was the thing she was eager to do in her life. Valeria has chosen abstraction and landscape as the main tunes in her works after a lot of experiments. Her first abstract collection is devoted to purposefulness, achievements and the inner state of a person. Through symbolic abstract images the artist tries to manifest that every little step of a man leads towards his dream. Valeria’s landscapes are full of expression and dynamic. Her paintings are some kind of meditative art that helps to relax and gives time to reflect.
In her life, Valeria has achieved everything on her own as a result of hard work and daily task solving. She finds her inspiration from lyrical abstractions of Simon Kenny, ethereal strokes of Irina Smirnova, color combinations of Kim Rose. The artist believes that with the help of her art one can highlight the main point and focus on priorities. Valeria paints every day and actively sells all over the world. Her works are presented in private collections in Europe, America and Russia.
