Victoria uses photographs, mostly in black and white, as a starting point to capture the figures and its proportions. It is the light that dictates further geometry.

Victoria is based in Switzerland and works with acrylic and spray paint on canvas. She combines realistic representation of the subject with abstract and bold colour scheme - the style referred as ‘spontaneous realism’. Going from the extreme contrast, Victoria gradually adds the details and colours to achieve the balance. Instead of descriptions, Victoria accompanies her painting with song lyrics, often originated in her mother tongue.
