Vivien Szaniszlo uses her ample talents in the name of surrealism, often doing portraits of women through various methods and materials. She uses watercolor, oil and mixed media. Szaniszlo has a history of using the zodiac to spurn inspiration for her artwork, having painted “a zodiac series about the difference between life and death” in the past. She has once again turned to the zodiac with one of her most recent series of twelve, her portrayal of the signs of the zodiac as witches with their cats.

Zodiac Sign: Leo

Unless you’re an expert on the zodiac and astrology in general, when confronted with zodiac related things, its natural to turn your attention to your own sign. I’m no different. All of the pieces in this series are filled with color and surreal details, all of them are eye catching and interesting, none of them mean as much to me as the one representing my own sign, Aquarius. The Aquarius witch and her Aquarius cats are such magical, whimsical fun. Adorable, tiny white kitties climb up the colorful, blue and orange, hot and cold skinned witch, climbing to her head. The curious felines are trying to peer down into the witch’s skull, the contents revealed to contain stars and planets now brimming out over the edges, planets dancing around in her eyeline. It’s a perfect representation of the Aquarius in the world, head in the stars, daydreaming, surrounded by cats climbing all over our bodies. Don’t be fooled though, mine is a cool blooded sign, many of the other Zodiac witches are revealed to be much darker, punches of color blasting through black voids and clothing. It’s a wild effect, one theoretically depicting the essence of all of us in some way. A worthy addition to Szaniszlo’s growing Zodiac inspired artwork.
