Description of the Artwork “Life is like a zebra”

Automatic translation

After seeing such a picture, every person will have a break in the pattern of the idea of what an African Zebra looks like. Surprisingly colorful, in the most diverse colors of the rainbow. There is such a common expression - life, like a zebra, consists of black and white stripes. But how can a person judge that it is white if he has not seen black? Or how can a person appreciate that it is good if there was no bad in life? Or how to understand that you are in the resource, if you have not gone through the stages of your awareness, growth, transformation to reach the state of the resource? In my opinion, there should be ALL colors in the life of any person. Because if you limit yourself to only black and white, and even more so only white, it will rather look like a clinic 🚑 😜 100% exclusive author's work The painting is already in a private collection.

About the artist
Vanda Orlova

Vanda Orlova, Ukraine

Congratulations! My name is Vanda Orlova, and I am a self-taught artist from Ukraine, a participant in the Jackson's Art Prize 2024 International Competition for Beginner Artists (UK), The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition 2024 (USA), the BBA Artist Prize International Competition 2024 (Berlin, Germany) and International Art Competition by Art Maze Mag (UK). I am sincerely waiting for MY art manager (curator), with whom we will "blow off the roof" of the art environment 💞🤝 I really like to draw and I am very tired of the managerial work that I have been doing for more than 25 years, managing marketing projects and teams in them. Currently, my paintings participate in exhibitions, competitions, Art Tours in Europe and are in many private collections in Ukraine, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Greece, Italy, USA, Canada. etc. My journey into the world of art began in 2021, when an inner desire to create turned into a purposeful exploration of my artistic consciousness. My works are made on canvas with oil and acrylic, sometimes with the use of texture pastes. Each work is an attempt to convey life's values, such as love, family, friendship. I often get inspiration from music and experiment with colors, shapes and textures. My creative process is a search. Looking for a method to visualize an idea, I experiment with different techniques, materials and combinations of ideas. I pay a lot of attention to color, experimenting with a limited palette. Searching for my own color shades and compositions constantly keeps me on my toes. In my work, I do not aim to depict an exact visual reality, but instead combine different materials, use colors, shapes and gestural signs to achieve the desired effect. I didn't graduate from art universities - I just drew all my life. My life was and is my professor. Sometimes cruel, sometimes kind and gentle. My creative process of creating a painting is a search. Searching for a method of visualizing an idea. First, in my head - I see the main plot and roughly have an idea of the general plan of the picture. Then I apply possible combinations of shapes, colors and textures to it. It happens that in the process of working on a picture, new ideas appear. Then elements and even characters that were not in the original idea appear on the canvas. Sometimes the solution doesn't come right away. Then I leave the canvas for a certain time. However, the search for an answer always remains in my mind. And after a certain time she comes. I can hear, see, or read something and it leads me to the answer I'm looking for. Therefore, I often have not one, but several paintings at once in my work. And I constantly think about each of them until I finish working on it. I like to experiment in my paintings. In each of my paintings, I develop - through new techniques, materials, a combination of ideas and images. I attach great importance to work with color. Most of my paintings are painted using a limited palette - only 4 basic colors! I like to find and create my own color shades. Searching for my compositions of colors, shades, constantly keeps me in good shape. I want you, looking at my paintings, to feel not only my presence, but also the idea I want to convey to you.
