New Exhibition

Viktoria Ganhao- C1 Art Gallery - Gallery - Almancil - Algarve

Viktoria Ganhao

Viktoria Ganhao, born in Kyiv, Ukraine, is an independent artist living between Portugal and Spain. Ganhao’s works can best be described as constant discovery and seeking of the unknown; they are feelings and emotions captured in painting through bold brushstrokes or multiple layers of colors applied by a palette knife. She plays with contrasts, chaos, peace, abstraction, and figuration. Her multi-layered paintings, with countless details imperceptible at first glance, immerse the viewer into their inner world, into a harmonious, meditative state that allows them to understand themselves better.

Her work is about abstract perception; the abstract nature of her art invites the viewer to develop their interpretation of the work. Her painting process is intuitive, and she enjoys creative freedom in this way of working because she believes that art is about freedom. Ganhao’s work has been shown internationally in numerous exhibitions and art fairs, featured in publications, and taken part in notable private and public collections worldwide.

Exhibition dates: 10 May to 10 July 2024
