Artist's Statement The reality of life is that your perceptions ' right or wrong ' influence everything else you do. The world is nothing but our perception of it. I see only through myself. I hear only through the filter of my story. I believe that art is a reflection of who we are as a person and artist. It is a culmination of ones experiences and exposure to life. Bio Valentina Kisseleva was born near Moscow (Russia). She entered the Institute of Fine Art in Ivanovo, the faculty of painting (1967- 1971). Her artistic style was formed due to the studying of the art graphics design in Belarus Art Academy in Minsk (1972 - 1977), the academic style of painting in the Academy of Arts and the coloring and forms of icons. The compilation of the different artistic schools and Valentina's comprehension of art have formed the recognizable author's style. She experiments with the line, color and different styles of the past. Artist's paintings are featured in many private collections in Russia and abroad. Her name was included in catalogue 'Graphic Designer Union of Belarus'.
