Realist painter Victoria Novak began her artistic career as an interior designer in her native Russia, where she graduated from the Academy of Arts.
After a few years as a successful designer, she moved to Europe where she earned a Master Degree in Interior and Living Design from Domus Academy in Milan. After that, she started working in the studio Fuksas in Rome.
A move to Rome, where her love for Italian Renaissance developed, inspired Victoria to devote herself to painting. Of adopting the time-honored techniques, Victoria says: “At first it was more out of curiosity, but in the end, I discovered a method that helps me to realize my ideas in the most satisfying way.”
Working with incredible attention to detail, colour and form, Victoria paints portraits and still lifes that deliver drama and beauty in organic, natural ways.
