Offering a refreshed take on the classic portrait, Award-Winning Artist, Vallenssia breaks the bounds of the traditional female likeness. Exploring within the parameters of abstract and the real, Vallenssia aims to blend these elements to create striking yet subtle portraits.
On the other hand, her skill as a portraitist echoes the finessed intricacies of the Old Masters. Her painted profiles are rendered with a touch akin to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa (1503) or Michelangelo’s Libyan Sibyl (1508-1512), with contours and colouring that bring her sitters to life in vibrant detail.
Vallenssia continues this surreal and yet seductive style and thus carries the artistic tradition forward…
Award-Winning Artist Snjezana Blagsic – Vallenssia. She is a self-taught artist and has been practicing a large range of artistic techniques, mostly graphics, gouache and ink, watercolour and acrylics.
Her themes are mostly human figures and human portraits going beyond the realism and hence slightly stepping into the abstract. For that reason she loves unusual angles of the body and the body muscularity combined with the women of the Renaissance age.
Another perspective, another view…
The esteemed Ms. Alexis Culotta, PhD in Art History, an expert in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture, and the work of Raphael, reviewed her artworks and compared it to the Old Masters, and the exactly ones Vallenssia admired to all her life, DaVinci, Dali, Michelangelo.
Her paintings have been presented in the ArtAscent printed Art Magazine as a Bronze Featured Artist among many artists of the world.

I paint and draw to satisfy my own curiosity. I explore all kinds of different ideas and techniques just to see if I could do it? In any case, haven’t really given a thought if anyone else might like it… I just enjoyed in the every single process while doing it…
