Daria Zapala graduated in 2005 with Masters in Fine Arts with focus in printmaking and multimedia from University of Opole, Institute of Fine Arts, Poland. Since 2014 she predominantly paints.
“My process of painting begins with an inner urge. I work in my sketchbooks until I get a composition that I am happy with, and then I start to paint. Having been trained academically, I have the ability to paint in a realistic or a representational way, but I combine these skills with decorative patterns, leaks of paint, scratches and other expressive marks, adding to and removing from the canvas depending on how I feel. I employ symbolism in both a traditional and a personal way. I have found a way to translate my life onto the canvas. “
Available for commissions.
