Evgenia Smirnova
Aci Catena (CT), Sicily, Italy
Artist Evgenia Smirnova illustratates surrealistic watercolor scenes. Books, stories, and fairy tales inspire me, says Evgenia. She shares her extraordinary visions of fantasy, filled with love and hope. Her process always begins with sensations, feeling her way into expressing her frame of mind. Evgenia studied economics at Saint Petersburg but then moved to Sicily to study under the mentorship of a private art teacher. “At that moment I understood that I can’t live without art,” says Evgenia. Today, she works out of her home studio in Catania, Sicily. And when she's not working, she spends her time with her two children and teaches art to elementary-age students.

Artist Statement

As a watercolor artist, my work is deeply illustrative and surrealistic. Inspired by books, stories, and fairy tales, I strive to convey a world filled with love, hope, and fantasy. While watercolor is my primary medium, I also explore acrylic and oil colors to infuse versatility into my paintings, maintaining a surrealistic touch. My academic background in economics from the University of Saint Petersburg was a prelude to my artistic journey, which truly unfolded when I moved to Sicily and joined the private art school of Salvo Coglitori. Participating in numerous art shows has fueled my passion, and I aspire to evolve as an artist, contributing to the international art market.
