“I chose to believe in myself and my story. Everyone’s uniqueness and dreams are worthy”


Inspired by creative cult imagery of Alexander McQueen and Matthew Barney, Viktoria approached doctors to have her lower limb amputated and replaced by a prosthetic limb in order to finally take control over her body. After five years battling to find the support for her decision among the medical professionals, she finally had a voluntary operation at the age of 20.

In many ways, this was the real start of her creative life and the end of frustrating limitations. Shortly after the transformation, she embarked on several creative projects that shaped her individuality.

After years not participating in the things she loved, she began to develop the artistic world she had long wanted to create.

She picked up her musical roots from the stage school in Latvia (where she was born during the Soviet era) and began songwriting, co-producing and ultimately orchestrating everything, directing photo shoots, designing online media and styling. Viktoria’s performances were most prominent in the fashion and art circles.

Her mission remains to explore the future depths of human experience. Most recently, she started to work with the MIT Media Lab on the development of cutting-edge prosthetic limbs.
