Dasha Skorubska-Kandinsky

She believes that «a work of art should be syncretic» and therefore, uses an academic manner as the foundation for her artwork. «Piece of art is complete only when it contains both myth (non-verbal philosophy), and aesthetics».

She was born in Kiev in 1985 to a family of artists. Dasha graduated from the Crimean Art College of Samokish and afterwards – the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kiev, where she received a master’s degree in art and then taught as an assistant professor.

She then moved to New York where her artistic style took shape.

Her father, Anton S. Kandinsky, (the descendant of Wassily Kandinsky) was a well known post soviet Pop Artist. He lived and worked in New York, where he rose to fame after developing his signature art style known as ‘Gemism’. He passed away in His studio in Manhattan in 2014.

Nowadays Dasha continues increasing and enriching her father’s style as well as her own art style, which she calls academicism.

She combines mystical expressionism, naked sexuality and symbolic mythology. Dasha combines the «raw and hot flesh» of the paint with the cold heart of her gemstones to create a work of art which is supplemented by both.
