Violetta Brandys Art Exhibition – Whisper of the Heart
Have you ever admired the glass painting on the windows at Cucina Rustica? The ones that set a pretty scene and catch the light beautifully through those earthy colours? Or the many paintings decorating the walls of our restaurant? You’ll be impressed to know that they were created by Cucina Rustica’s very own Violetta Brandys. Violetta is our Restaurant Manager, but she’s also a wonderfully talented painter and a Vedic art teacher. From paintings to decor, we’ve been lucky to have Violetta’s artistic eye bring style, creativity and atmosphere to Cucina Rustica over the years. This month, very excitingly, Violetta will be showcasing her amazing work in an art exhibition at Frederick’s Coffee Lounge & Bar, also in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. We highly recommend you visit!
VIOLETTA’S EXHIBITION – WHISPER OF THE HEART
Violetta’s exhibition, will take place on Thursday 28th June 2018 at Frederick’s Coffee Lounge & Bar, from 5pm – 9pm. Guests can browse Violetta’s stunning paintings over a glass of wine and Violetta herself will be there to guide you through her work and answer any of your questions.
Here are some of the works that will be featured at the exhibition:
Violetta has had a passion for painting from a young age. Born in north-east Poland to her Polish father and Lithuanian mother, she grew up immersed in nature. This greatly inspired her as a child and is reflected in her art today.
Throughout her life, Violetta has found great pleasure in art and the process of creating. Her journey has led to her discovery of Vedic Art and its simple key principles. She visited the small island of Öland, Sweden, to be taught by Johannes Källman, the son of Curt Källman, who was the Founder of Vedic Art. Violetta describes Vedic art, which she is also a teacher of, as ‘an intuitive method of art which helps awaken our creativity.’
Violetta truly believes we are all artists and Vedic Art simply reminds us that we have the ability to create. Furthermore, it can be an opportunity to explore the parallels between art and life.
“Vedic Art is a way to remember how to paint and how art can be created…we begin to remember the whole story of life, from where we come, and where we are going”- Curt Källman, Founder of Vedic Art.
