The artwork that we create tells as much if not more about ourselves, than what we say to others. In each piece of work, Victoria Rompilla creates fascinating worlds that draw upon her past medical and scientific studies. Born in 1986, she is a native of New Jersey. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Medical Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2009, where she concentrated in premedical studies and illustration. From there she continued to illustrate for Nature Publishing, Bayer Healthcare, and many others.
In 2010, she decided to return to graduate school to pursue a Masters Degree in Computer Arts at the School of Visual Arts. Her influences include a mix of science, anatomy, Surrealism, DaDa, and the masters of the Renaissance. Her personal work stems from a keen observation of the environment around her and sees the role of art as serving a greater purpose. She considers her artwork a success when a piece evokes a thought, a memory, or an idea. Her personal goal is to move others and give them some insight into how she sees the world.
