WonderStreet Interview with Zhana Viel
Tell us a little bit about yourself: What got you interested in art? Have you taken any art classes?
I have been into art ever since I can remember. I've never taken art classes.I believe every artist should be his own teacher.
You mentioned on your profile that your art is inspired mainly by classical music. Has this always been the case?
I like watching classical music concerts. I am fascinated by the unique facial expressions musicians have while they are performing. Before classical music and painting I was into art photography.
What is your dream project?
A show in Paris and then in New York...yes its still just a dream...
What has been your most touching or amazing moment you've experienced as an artist?
Every time people buy my art is an amazing and touching moment for me.
What other artists have been inspirational to you in your work?
Rembrandt. He was a genius.
Which creative medium would you love to pursue but haven’t yet?
Bronze. I have always been interested in sculpture.
How do you know when a work is finished?
I don't know. I like to leave my artworks unfinished.
Are you involved in any upcoming shows or events? Where and when?
People who buy my art ask me the same question. I have been selling my art via online art galleries for more than 5 years. Maybe next year here in London. I also have a blog which you can find here: http://zhanavielart.blogspot.co.uk/
Thank you Zhana, we wish your dream comes true and we are looking forward to see your work in Paris or New York very soon!
