Izabela Venuso "strives to capture the essence..." OIAF 2018 Exhibitor

Red Rose 12x17 inch Arylic on Canvas.jpg

Izabela Venuso is a Polish artist living in Birmingham, UK. 

From her earliest years, Izabela has had a fascination with art but has never undertaken any formal study of the subject.  The direction of her life totally changed when she met an art teacher who developed and refined her skills, and ultimately influenced her preference in painting portraits.

In her portrait painting, Izabela strives to capture the essence of her subjects’ character and mood, their favourite objects, and the unique living environment of their cosy homes.

 Her choice of artist’s name ‘Venuso’ is a combination of love, attraction, and ambition.

Where do you see your art going in ten years…?

With the interest I get now from the British public, there is a great possibility that I can make it very far in my artistic career. I would definitely like to grow my clientele data base for commissioned portraits internationally.

Which are your favorite artists…?

I have many favorite artists like Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, Vermeer, Monet, Thomas Gainsborough and many more. However, my heart was stolen by the greatest Dutch portrait painter - Rembrandt.  I am mesmerized with his technique of capturing the faces of his models. He is a very popular artist and people all over the world still admire his work nowadays. 

Greatest achievements so far…?

Really understanding the difference between high quality/technique in the paintings.

Would love to exhibit my work in …?

Portrait Art Gallery in London. 

What is your biggest dream…?

To be successful in the art field and be remembered by the future generations.

What makes your art different than others…?

I was told that I am capable to paint portraits with feelings. I can capture the eyes and faces that you can feel the soul of the sitter in the painting.
