Viviana Serra, illustrator and tattoo artist based in Zürich, Switzerland

How did it all start, what is your background?

I have always been drawing and creating, but it started to become a profession a few years ago, when I started developing my style.

What inspires you to create your art? What does your art represent?

I mostly get inspired by my surroundings and what is happening around me or with me, especially when I am in a dark period caused by my bipolarity. My art is very personal and represents some kind of self-comfort, using abstract and rather dark elements.

What does your art mean to you?

It is a big part of me and the most effective medium to express myself.

Did you feel a change in your creativity after corona came? if Yes then how?

I got more inspired and more productive.

What is your dream project?

Not sure yet ;)

What role do you feel artists have in our society today?

Art is a language everyone can understand, and artists use it to speak the truth or openly say their opinion, creating like a mirror to society. I feel people turn to art, when they need somewhere to escape.

What do you hope to have achieved in your art in 5 years?

I hope I can live by only doing art and tattooing.

How do you feel you benefit from working with us at SKINSINK?

As an artist in my phase of establishment, I enjoy working in collaboration with such an inspiring platform as SKINSINK. The cooperation has extended the reach of my works, and most importantly made me aware of other artists in the same process.

Tell us something about you that is not in connection to art.

I am Italian, but I never drink wine with food. I do love cheese though.
