In ‘The Portfolio of…’ I feature one designer a day and give all of you a chance to share your work with the world. A lot of you are looking for ways to share your work, get your name out, reach possible clients, you name it… We’re here to help! Submit your portfolio for a chance to get featured here. Today it’s time to show you a selection of the works of Amalia Kouvalis.
Amalia is currently earning her BFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work is heavily influenced by the radiance of dreams, nostalgia, and Victorian aesthetics. After spending a year renovating a historical 1920’s movie theater, Amalia developed a passion for restoring pieces of history. She envisions her artwork as a time capsule that momentarily correlates the past, present, and future. Amalia manipulates her collection of damaged Victorian photographs by reconstructing them into pale pastel oil paintings to illustrate the ethereal atmosphere she perceives within each photo. If Amalia is not painting in the studio, she can be found etching, sculpting, wood burning, or making jewelry.
