About the Artwork:
“The fragility of inner peace of mind carefully preserved from the darkness of the world around. It is very vulnerable and protected only by thin petals but despite everything, it burns and is not going to go out. It is much stronger than it seems and only gets brighter in the dark.
The background of this work is the events that are taking place in my homeland. Even when facing a threat, inside we feel a soft light that gives us strength to resist reality.” – Dasha Pliska
About the Artist:
Dasha Pliska was born in Odessa, Ukraine, where she currently still lives and works. In 2013 she graduated from the Odessa International University of Humanities in Graphic Design. Her hometown has largely shaped her world with its rich cultural heritage and fascinating architecture. Inspired mostly by nature and her surroundings, Dasha uses pencil and ink in a graphic style to not only create art that can change the way we feel about an idea, but to suffuse a culture with ideological disorder, and to shift the human heart.
