Her first paintings were done when she was 5. She has a degree in economics and works with luxury real estate. But Brera of Milano awakes her and here she begins to create in contemporary style.
Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Julia Viviani – I’m from Riga, Latvia, have a diploma in economical degree, was working as a metal trader, investing in real estate and constructing private villas. When I came to Italy I was absolutely in love with its architecture and nature. I studied Italian language, fashion design and later I’ve got a degree In real estate brokerage. And all my life, from childhood, I was creating something, like art compositions with dry flowers or paintings, designed and realized my long silk dresses or entire fashion collection.
LC – What are your thoughts while you paint? Do you have any habits or rituals while you work?
JV – I create my art to help kids in difficulty, most of the part of the money from the selling goes to charity, to organizations, occupied with children in need. Those children haven’t their own families or have different fiscal diseases. So, creating and selling my art I’m helping and supporting them, donating the money. And in this way my clients, buying my art, making great thing, participating in the very important and good mission, helping small persons. So, both parts donate to charity, with is my goal! So, while I’m creating, I’m dreaming that all kids in all the world are healthy and happy it gives me a lot of positive energy and love. I feel united with the universe and when I begin, I never know what kind of art will come at the end. I love to experiment and try new techniques, mix colours, textures and shapes. Some of my art pieces needed 5-7 hours, others-few days or even weeks to be realized. It’s a kind of spiritual work.
LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
JV – It’s all about the pleasure of expressing myself, charging my art with good spiritual energy, I feel like there is a channel that comes from the universe, giving me this power to create. I’m sure every one of us is able to create, we just need to open our hearts and become in a meditative mood.
LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
JV – Well, mostly it’s about love, nature, forgiveness and happiness) very often it’s specifically about ocean or seaside, sunrise or sunset. I’m in love with them. My dream is to live near the sea or ocean, watching its waves come and go, I’m sure their waters are alive.
LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
JV – I’m very thankful to be exposed and receive comments from visitors, it’s such an honour for me, I’m very pleased about it. Art, beauty – will save the world.
LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?

LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
JV – My artwork “Love in the city” is telling about it, about a big noisy busy grey city, and a love everywhere in between. No matter what, rainy or sunny day, summer or winter, if you are happy or sad, there is always love inside every building, every corner, every heart. Our hearts are beating because of love. And we are coming in this world for love, thanks love, and to love. So, it’s all about love, you just need to open your heart to feel it.
