Jillian Nye: Performer, Artist, & Stylist
Stumbling upon an artist that can twist and formulate her painting style upon request is like stumbling upon unseen collections by the masters among the history of art. Julinya Vidigal De Vince is a fantastic artist that currently lives and works in her unit at the WAV.
It's time to cancel your flights and reservations, no longer will you need to travel thousands of miles to the ruins of Byzantium in Ravenna, Italy--now you can view the ancient art of Mosaics right here in the 805. Ravenna, a small city on the coast of Northern Italy, holds some of the world's finest preserved examples of the most intricate and difficult type of mosaics, which is aptly named the Ravenna Method. Larissa Strauss, an artist that is currently living and working at the WAV (Working Artists Ventura) project has made use of the Ravenna Method due to inspiration from a Scottish artist she met in Ravenna. He taught her this technique, and although difficult and very time consuming, she decided to use it for the purpose of a more painterly result for her pieces.
