Vinka Gašparuš is a figurative painter. Mostly focused on portraits and nudes, she seeks inspiration from her friends and family. In her latest series, she explores women’s strength, intuition and bond with themselves. She sees them as shamans, priests, witches...everything that is related to woman’s true nature. The sixth sense.
The woman wolf. Dedicating a spirit animal to every muse, exploring their character, life journey and ambitions. Her oil paintings are delicate, romantic but at the same time strong. They show the complexity of human nature and character. They are a reminder of the power of feminine energy.
