Valerie Savchits is a multidisciplinary artist, born in Riga, Latvia. Since completing her studies at the University of Salford in 2016, her work has been actively exhibited in galleries nationally and internationally. Savchits is the recipient of Hotel Elephant and Southwark Council Arts & Culture Grant Scheme and was selected as one of the three hundred art students to exhibit her work at ‘Future Late’ exhibition in Tate Modern in summer 2016. Valerie has been featured in numerous blogs and publications including The Guardian, Manchester Evening News and The Resident. Artist currently resides in Brighton, UK.

Savchits’ body of work primarily consists of mixed media paintings as well as readymade installations and sculptures made of a vast array of materials including but not limited to: clay, raw minerals and metal. The artist strings her stories, feelings and fragments of memory from then and now just like pearls onto a thread to create her own mythological system. The textures, lines, shapes and even colour palette found in surrounding landscapes influenced her style and manner, both in sculpture and painting. In her sculpture, Savchits often pairs clay with raw crystals and metal to celebrate the juxtaposition of rawness and refinement. The inspiration for Savchits’ work comes from different mythologies and cosmic symbolism that play an important role in forming her visual language.

Popular FAQs

How should I look after my print?

Giclée prints are renowned for their quality and extreme longevity, which is why they are displayed in museums, art galleries and private collections. So it is important to properly protect and care for your new pride and joy. This is why we always say it is best to buy your print already framed, as this will avoid it getting damaged. But if you would prefer to buy a standalone print or use your own framer, try to avoid leaving it rolled for too long

To uncurl or flatten a print, carefully remove it from the postal tube whilst keeping it covered in the protective acid-free tissue paper. Lay it out on a clean, flat surface, image side up. With the tissue paper covering the print’s image, place some smooth, flat objects (like books) on the ends and middle of the print. Let your giclée print relax over-night and it should be nice and flat. Avoid uncurling it by rolling the print the opposite way to receiving it, as you can easily crease it if done incorrectly

Having a frame that is FSC certified and created from 100% acid-free materials is vital. It keeps the artwork in mint condition across the years and ensures the colours stay true. If you don’t opt for one of our frames, make sure you buy one of the same quality, otherwise, the materials can damage the print over time and sunlight could fade the colours

What are the delivery costs?

Will I be charged import fees?*

We can guarantee there will be no additional import, custom or delivery fees on shipments to the UK, EU, AUS and USA*. For all other destinations it is pretty unlikely, but as with many international imports, you may be required to pay local duties or fees on the arrival of our order. Please note, DROOL unfortunately can not advise on this, nor can DROOL accept responsibility for these costs on orders outside of the UK, EU, AUS and USA. It is best to speak to your local authorities for more details.

*The only exception is A0 prints delivered to the EU, as these are currently shipped from the UK. So since Brexit these may be subject to fees
