Artist
Violetta Bogdanova
Violetta Bogdanova develops various techniques with a strong focus on painting and collage. Her language is still developing, but her early works can be attributed to mystical realism and discerning an interest in spiritual practices. Later works tend to abstraction and are dominated by light pastel colors, which, according to the artist, serves as a way to detoxify the world overloaded with visual information. Painting the designs in a repeated pattern over an ethereal, pastel backdrop—inspired by snowy landscapes of her home in North Kazakhstan—Bogdanova foregrounds the subtlety in the structures’ appearance and underscores the presence of beauty in even the most utilitarian objects.

Violetta has worked in cities such as Petropavl, Tokyo, Shanghai, Milan, Moscow and Beijing.
