FOUNDER AND ART DIRECTOR OF THE BALTIC VIBE
Valentina Kovaļišina (in art Valentinaki) is Latvian artist working and living in Italy since 2009. Her current artistic style is based on abstractionism aimed at celebrating the most tangible elements of our planet: nature, the sea and water that are observed for a long time and then echoed in her works, at times of considerable size.
Valentinaki has taken part in many projects in Italy and abroad, both in public and private venues. Among them, the site-specific installations set up in historical locations such as the Sanctuary of Santa Maria dei Miracoli at San Celso (Milan), the Vicevano Castle (Vigevano), the Castel dell’Ovo (Naples) and the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio (Milan), Palazzo del Pegaso (Florence).
Her recent activity is aimed at promoting the cultural heritage of the Baltic countries abroad.
