Hi to everyone! 

Thanks for visiting my page!

My name is Alyona Vygotskaya and I am an artist. 

For a long time, I felt the need to express myself in a more general way painting landscapes, portraits, naked models and still-life paintings.

But then working on my institutional project in Moscow State Academic Art Institute named after V.I. Surikov I found personal way for development as an artist – it is a streetscape!

Most of my inspiration derives from everyday things I see and experience, within the streets. I get the shots of streetscapes which attract my attention and then I use them in my work.In spite of the fact that I am working from photos I am on a very fascinating journey, to let my heart and soul speak rather than only my mind and my ability to render a subject fairly realistically. 

It’s an interesting balance I now have between painting in a more realistic way and following my own path wherever it leads.
