Victoria Vaz

Victoria Vaz has studied in many art schools including the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, Academy of Art University in California and the Scottsdale Artist School in Arizona.

Victoria currently works primarily in sculpture however when she is developing an exhibition, she incorporates paintings within the same theme and body of work. Key concepts of her artwork relate to heritage, struggles and transformations.

In her own words “My art is inspired by thoughts of conquering the space we live in. Art must be powerful, fearless and a reflection of our present time infused by the air we breathe”
