Born in 1996 and raised in Odesa, Ukraine, Daria is currently based between Kyiv, Odesa and Paris where she is finishing her Master’s at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs.
Daria’s creative work is devoted to an exploration of how people interact with nature and society, the places they inhabit and the process of growing up.
The energies of purity, softness and vulnerability are the ones she comes back to over again in her artistic practice.
