About The Artist

Vian Shamounki BorchertI am an expressionist artist, I consider all my work to be visual poems.
For me nature is very important and plays a very essential role in my life. Thus, I am a nature lover - mother nature is my sanctuary and my ultimate solace. I am an avid nature observer where contemplating upon nature helps me reach inner peace and attain moments of zen.

My artwork albeit abstract in nature offers symbolism referencing the status of a mysterious future and how life is such a precious commodity. My artwork also showcases a sense of identity of who I am as an artist: my hopes, my aspiration and my dreams. Consequently, the work becomes a bridge of reflection and connection to the past, present along with a sense of wonder to what the future holds.
