You know the feeling when you see an image so appealing to your senses right then and there that you just want to climb inside? That’s what the art of Victoria Semykina does for me. I think finding an artist you like is almost like finding a new friend; one that shares similar interests, tastes and aspirations, which is how you connect with their work. Victoria’s dream-like illustrations, paintings and collages depict the sort of scenes my imagination often tries to articulate, but can never quite grasp. If I could ask anyone to paint my personality, I think I’d ask her.
From her biography:
Victoria Antolini is a Russian illustrator and fine artist currently based in Bologna, Italy.
In between illustrating, she loves observing people, traveling and riding her red bicycle which features a basket that serves well collecting materials for her collages and other artwork.
Her strong passion for ships propels Victoria to spend considerable time at her shipyard working on the realization of her dream, which is to sail around the world in her largest paper vessel.
