About Vira

Vira Yakymchuk is primarily self-taught. Her paintings has been strongly influenced by apprenticeships with both Fatih Gurbuz who’s creative production revolves around classical figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner.

Vira explains her work by saying, “My objective is to create my own world! World where nature awakens our souls to the harmony and the vast inner freedom , it’s try to allows us to give up time and space. We live in a hard time – a period of materialism, capitalism, momentary pleasures and extreme individualism. It is an era on which the outrageous becomes ” the new normal” and our capacity to get shocked by tragic events becomes muted. Crisis prevails, new problems arise and a careless policy syncs into a society inured to the ruthless, immoral behaviour we experience or read about on a daily basis. A global epidemic has taken hold of our society: the indifference to suffering and needs of others. I reflect reality like a dream, which is also a reflection of real life. Sensations, images, ideas, concepts, thoughts, emotions and feelings reflect objective reality experiences. They express a subjective attitude of man to objects and phenomena of reality. I want to stop time for people – to let them bask in the eternity of the present moment, and to celebrate it. As long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the human face and body it’s expressions, but maybe even more important: I’m fascinated by what’s behind the people.”
