Realist painter Victoria Novak began her artistic career as an interior designer in her native Russia. For many years she enjoyed a successful career in her home city. A move to Italy, where her love of Italian Renaissance art was fostered, inspired Victoria to devote herself to painting. She began to experiment with Old Master painting techniques, but applying them within a more contemporary context. 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 satisfied way.”
Working with an incredible attention to detail, color, and form, Victoria paints portraits and still lifes that deliver drama and beauty in organic, natural ways.
Victoria’s work has been featured in International Artist Magazine and American Art Collector and included in numerous juried exhibitions.
Her paintings can also be found in private collections in Russia, Malta, Italy and Switzerland.
She currently lives in Rome, where she continues to develop as an artist while also working for an international architecture and design studio.
