Daria Veshtak – electronic musician and CG-artist, performer representative of the Ukrainian underground art community.
Studying at the art academy and working in commerce shaped her artistic style and techniques, while nightlife and acquaintance with the Kyiv art scene inspired her to quit her job in commerce and experiment with audio-visual techniques in her work, using various mediums – drawing, acting, composing, film-making, vj-ing, creating animation on game engines.
Travels and tours in Ukraine, performances at various non-commercial venues, front-line cities and villages, participation in art projects and initiatives are reflected in her work and its themes.
The theme of loneliness and the urban environment provides the coordinates on which the landscapes of her compositions are built, emphasizing the contrast between the familiar and the imaginary. Through symbolism, irony and fictional characters, she recreates or rethinks the events and images that traumatized her, turning them into a visually harmonious journey for the viewer.
