Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Vassia Alaykova

Vassia Alaykova

Vassia who resides and works in Boston, MA is an illustrious artist. Her work has been displayed in numerous galleries and is in the property of private collectors around the World. Her first exhibition was held in Berkeley, CA when she was only 14 years old.

Her interest in the Arts started when she was 10. After unsuccessful attempt to get into ballet school she decided to pursue her passion in the arts flowing the Fine Art path. Vassia’s talent comes from her father, who is a prominent artist in Eastern Europe. Even though he never encouraged her to go into the arts, he was influential in her life as the one who introduced her to classical music, philosophy, poetry, fine, art, film, theater, dance. All this stored somewhere in Vassia’s mind, radiated through her work later throughout the years.

“I try to find a correlation between the present day and history, between reality and imagination, simplicity and complexity, order and chaos, science and art. On the canvas inside of the story, geometric shapes dance with organic ones creating a chaotic harmony. Simplicity turns complex on the other hand complexity morphs into an infinite simplicity thus reaching an ultimate sophistication. Creativity is the process of discovering and connecting to the dark side of one’s spirit, where there is a constant struggle to find the light hidden behind the idea of life. Life as a metaphor for happiness. One can only express the complexity and deepness of human emotions and feelings through color, that’s why I use a lot of it. Color is like music, like poetry, it get’s into your soul, washing away the monotony of every day life.”

In 2012 Vassia started working on new series of paintings “Deities”, inspired by yoga, spirituality and her travels to India, Indian traditional dance and dance/movement in general, fairytales, encounters with different people.

“A painting is a poem without words.”- Horace

"Welcome to my World of color and imagination. I fell in love with painting and performance arts at the early age of 10, studied classical ballet and later on fine arts and graphic design. The ideas behind my work are inspired by Eastern European folklore, world history, theatre and poetry, cultures. I believe that color plays an essential role in conveying feelings and emotions, just as poetry, it creates a complexity of elaborated ideas derived straight from the artist's heart."
