Vokiana is inspired by the use of colors in different cultures and traditions. Through her art, she shows how color affects our wellbeing and how it relates to important memories in our lives. In her work, she combines various techniques to evoke specific feelings and emotions in the viewer.
The message of her art is that it is all about our emotions and we experience everything through the lens of our feelings and beliefs. Vokiana believes that artists can send a powerful message to the world through their art.
“I see life as an experiment: I believe that your personality creates your personal reality.” — Vokiana
