Victoria Kovalenchikova’s abstract artworks are an outlook at the transformation of the world surrounding us; a shout in the cold infinity of cosmos. It is an attempt to understand the impact of people on the planet through the language of art. Using google images to explore the Earth in its entirety, she plays with angles and textures to create works that appreciate and bring attention to the uniqueness of our planet.
The contemporary trend in her paintings is characterized by a figurative integration of abstract elements. Creatively mixing media from cement, resin, acrylic and epoxy on stretched canvas, Victoria’s work is simultaneously sculpture and painting.

Victoria Kovalenchikova was born in Mogilev, Belarus, and received her degree from the Belarusian State Academy of Arts. Her series on the world is immediately familiar, provoking us to step closer and have a better look, then after a few moments the nuances of her art appear. Her training is evident in her skillful application of textures, provoking a harmonious juxtaposition of elements that humbles our approach to the earth.
Kovalenchikova states, “Although we humans may feel like disconnected, independent fragments, Earth reminds us that we are all united on this place: notes within a larger symphony of life. No different from the massive whale in the ocean or the tiniest needle of a pine tree. There is no way out; to save ourselves we must save our home”
