A world between conscientiousness and passion

Yet ultimately, Shevchuk‘s thirst for creativity returned with an encounter with a gallery owner from Monaco. She adopted the name Shev Lunatic,and has been working as a freelance artist since 2016.
Art as a rebellion for freedom and for expression
Shev Lunatic works with strong colors, without losing the seriousness of her expression. She creates her typical colorful street art works at festivals and events. In her works, she combines abstract forms and creates images with spray and acrylic paint, which move between realism and surrealism.
