Evgeniya Golik
(aka Evgola) is a Russian born pop-surrealist based in San Diego, California. She graduated Art School at the age of 17, and then went on to study at the Far Eastern State Technical University in Vladivostok, Russia. Evgeniya earned her degree in Design and Architecture. She is currently a full time fine artist, illustrator, and art teacher.

She is inspired by the European Renaissance, Russian Orthodox icons, Slavic folklore, fairy tales and modern pop culture (fashion, photography, cinematography, music), Evgola’s art combines a classic sensibility within a contemporary setting, something which artist-self defines as ‘Neo Renaissance’. Using a variety of media, her work joins real world portraiture with imaginative and often surreal narratives to highlight and reveal her subject’s personalities.

Evgola’s haunting paintings and drawings are doors to a mystical realm, one which showcases a myriad of beautiful human faces and fantastical creatures, that seek to express their secret through esoteric language. “Deep gazes, halos, long necks, blossoming skins, gold leaves, secrets and stars…”
