Interview with Fiona Vyshka

Interview to Sissy Sigioultzi – Rooka, Philologist, Writer, member of the Union of Journalists Periodical & Electronic Press NWE, Radio Producer at and President of the”Greek Cyprus Cultural Association”

A few words about myself

I am a self-taught artist, started reading about the history of art and techniques at a very young age. All this contributed to my artistic development, but above all I painted my emotions, thoughts and dreams. All traumatic but fruitful experiences pour out from my paintings. For me, painting is not just art nor an aesthetic result, or even an identical style that I once tried to represent. My motto is: “I am the element that gives my paintings coherence”. All of them may seem different but also a part of one bigger vision, in a form of expression and confession.

Inspiration sources

Experiences and feelings.

Materials you use

Acrylics and Oil mostly.

Technique and style

None in particular.

How do you define the end, the point of completion for each one of your artworks?

I would describe the completion of a work as liberating. The whole process is a liberation and in the end I feel free of all my thoughts.

How important is the title of your work and how do you choose each title?

I am choosing each title based on what I felt while painting or what it makes me feel at the end.

Why did you choose art in your life?

I choose art in a way of surviving and domesticating what’s in my head that’s why it feels liberating at the end.
