- Inspiration to create new artifacts sometimes comes to me quite suddenly, - said Victoria Valuk. “I like working with oil very much, mixing different shades, playing with colors and shapes. The idea of this project came to me during the coronavirus pandemic when the rules of life changed - somewhere there were strict quarantines, somewhere there was chaos, confusion, and uncertainty, questions - "What's next?". The art world went through that by getting a new impetus to seek interaction with the viewers. For example, it has become completely normal to organize exhibitions and shows not only offline, but also online. And by the way, I am very grateful that many museums in the world have opened their virtual doors to demonstrate paintings by great artists of past eras.
Now another unique opportunity has appeared in the world. Anyone can find a mini painting from a big reality show — the art tour show «Artifact» by the European artist Victoria Valuk and keep it absolutely free of charge. Such a collectible painting can turn into a family heirloom that will be passed on to future generations, telling a wonderful story about the find, because each lucky person has his own story about how he found the artifact. Someone found the painting while going fishing, while others found it while on vacation with their family in the Atlantic Ocean.

The artifact sailed on the waves from February till July 2021, and was found near the Marathon (The Keys, Atlantic Oceanside) after 141 days in the water, it started its voyage from the Caribbean Sea, Saint Martin Island.
