Veronica Akopyan

Her name is Veronica, an excellent Russian book illustrator.
She is good at observing life and is careful and sensitive. Her work is like a narrated film, wrapped in a seductive shell full of curiosity.
Go immerse yourself in her world! Observe the corners of our lives that have been forgotten by us...

01. The childhood "lonely patient"

You might think that the artist's childhood with a brush was bright and colorful, but this romantic story did not happen to Veronica.

Her childhood was filled with books and paintings, quiet and silent, and excluded from the lively world. She was more like a pearl from the bottom of the deep sea. She was a quiet "lonely patient" until she showed her razor-sharp edge.

At the age of eight, she moved from North Ossetia to Moscow. The contradictions in the new environment made her very depressed. The nationalist discrimination on campus accompanied her through a lonely childhood and spent most of the time immersed in her own world -- drawing, reading, listening to music, and being with herself.
Perhaps her sensitivity to art and life began at that time.
This experience deeply influenced her childhood. Even now, when Veronica references the great difficulties she overcame, she still sighs:

"I think children and childhood teachers did not like me because of the problem area, it makes me very sad."

02. The healing power of art and struggle

"First when I entered university, I had not built up enough self-confidence. I was always worried that I would be kicked out if I could not keep up with my studies. So I studied very hard. Then I suddenly realized that I became one of the best students in the class. It turns out that I worried too much. Slowly, I finally let go of the struggle."

Veronica met many kindred spirits who also love art. They have often have heart-to-hearts and talk about different views on art. They also meet at museum exhibitions on weekends. Her world is no longer alone, and the pearl in the deep sea is finally emerging.

In fact, this healing power has brought her more than that...
The reserves and accumulation of knowledge allowed her to establish her own clear outlook on life. When talking about the style of the work, she smiled and replied firmly: I like meaningful things, but I knew from the beginning that I would not stick to one style. I like to try different things.

03. The pure white world of vegetarianism

Veronica is a vegetarian.
Her family is mostly vegetarian, under the influence of her mother. She learned of the cruelty of the animal farm industry and it has been a full seven years since she has eaten meat.
She likes Martin Luther King's words-"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree." Her world is extremely important to be kind to others and protect the earth as much as possible.
Her experience has made her more sensitive and empathetic for life. Every monthVeronica donates to the animal shelters; when she learned that some milk companies were killing newborn calves to save milk, milk quietly disappeared from her own refrigerator.

Veronica's works are so full of sound and shout to the world.
Full of storytelling and rich emotions, they are like a movie...

The old man at dusk accompanied by the moon, the lonely poodle in the crowd, the pianist surrounded by hedonism...Veronica’s work detail portrayed by her perception of the world.

She has a pair of eyes to see the world.
This is a pair of green eyes that only vegetarianism has.
