Dasha Kudinova


Born in 1982. Graduated from Moscow National Institute of Design and continued studying in the United States. Worked as a fashion-photographer and assisted many famous artists such as – Shimon Okshteyn, Robert Whitman, Liset Castillo and others. This experience had a significant influence on Dasha Kudinova’s art and on the development of her drawing technique.

Dasha creates multidimensional abstract works – figurative paintings with unknown dreamy worlds. Her works charm with its natural beauty, unusual forms and sophisticated motives. Dasha tries to employ diaphanous structures’ abilities in order to show the intensity of colors of her paintings’ background. Those artworks feature fixed period of time which has its past and future. Besides, the viewer can notice how some forms and elements transform, deepen their colors, gradually get out of sight and dissolve into substances.

Installations are also major figures in Dasha’s art. It is ephemeral constructions with sophisticated structures and texture. They are created with big variety of materials, such as – resin, plastic toys, package, wires, CD disks, fabric, etc. Dasha tries to put on the base of the concept of her installations the idea of how the image of multidimensional painting can cross the line of its “Universe” and appear in our reality.

When Dasha constructs her artworks she prefers to experiment with forms and texture. She can strenuously transform objects until she will receive a desired result – “I have a target to make a very special form which will not associate with something that exists in our world, but which will live its own life and seem real.”
