Viktorija Skafaru

Lithuanian born artist based in Italy.  San Gimignano - Tuscany
Oil & Watercolor

I've finished my art history studies  at the Vilnius Academy of Arts (2008). Worked as copywriter in the field of creative industries in Lithuania as well as  journalist - correspondent after I moved in Italy. Here I rediscovered the universal language of the images and turned my interest in art from theory into the practise. in 2017 I've got a permission to work as an official artist at san gimignano (unesco) streets. Am happy that some of my artworks  make a part of the official collections of St. Martins Shields institute (2017) in Florence and lithuanian art museum (2018) in Vilnius

Statment

"I seek to capture the spirit of places, perceive their pulsations and translate them into images without worrying about their objective appearance. I like to confront the idea, to travel in time, to take inspiration from art of the past cultures, ancient civilizations and ethnic traditions. I try to rediscover their formal language and understand their essential meaning by refusing to look at the facts and stories behind. Instead I inspect how the forms are created and what kind of sensations they evoke. I am interested in finding a contemporary way to experience and live the knowledge that does not belong to any time or place but the traces of which appear in mythology, religion, archetypes and symbols"
