Artist Lena Viddo’s paintings are filled with surrealistic symbolism. The portraits she paints depict “big eyed” young girls in extreme situations that revolve around eating and animals. The figures are sometimes draped in severed swan necks or stuffing their faces with raw fish. These illustrations are commentary on both uninhibited consumerism and popular fairy tale stories such as Alice in Wonderland. Viddo was featured at GZ Art Basel, in Basel Switzerland in June of 2012. She spends her time living and working in both New York and Vermont. See more below!
