Welcome to Broken Toyland. A universe in the mind of artist, Valery Milovic. A place with creatures and characters that seem strangely familiar. The names are changed to protect the not-so-innocent. They come to life with the help of paint and a brush. Sometimes collage pulled from old books. But live they do. They must. And it all takes place amidst a backdrop of beautiful chaos, as drips yields to gravity.
Valery became interested in art almost from birth. It has been a lifelong obsession. “A drive on the road of need, quite like air.” “This is not a job… this is a verdict” she often says. Her unique style of creating has touched young and old, male and female alike. It has disturbed many who do not want to feel. “If music is the universal language, then art is the language of the heart.”
Broken Toyland has been seen in numerous galleries around the United States and beyond, been in many publications, on cd’s, skate decks, t-shirts and hangs in homes, worldwide.
