Victoria Atkinson’s paintings and drawings pulsate with the rhythm of a disco dance floor. Bold, fun colour combinations and energetic line-work define her work.
A big fan of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Victoria creates abstract paintings depicting the wrestling ring including crowds, trophies and the wrestlers themselves. Victoria presents this aggressive and typically masculine sporting domain very much through her own lens. Colours including hot pink, blue and yellow, bringing a rainbow delight to the world of violent wrestling.
Victoria is an emerging artist working in painting, sculpture and performance. She is a member of the Props Collective, a collaboration between six Studio A supported artists who work to commission; providing decorative sculptures and performances for various corporate events and parties. Victoria undertook a mentorship with Studio A guest artist, Paul Williams in 2016.
Victoria recently completed a body of textile-based work of hand-embroidered wrestling masks and belts. These were showcased at the Australian Design Centre's Meet the Maker session in February 2018.
