Artist Daria K. will move you and provoke your senses, her paintings and drawings will shake,
vibrate, and give you chills as if this 22 year old is a master in life itself. Even though most of

At the age of fifteen, as Daria jumped off the train platform a speeding train struck her, and
from there her long months of hospitalization began: an operation on her skull, broken bones,

Other works embody the poetry of Spaniard, Garcia Lorca such as Diamond, De Profundis,
and Goodbye. In this series her works are an essay on spirituality and faith from the depth of
despair and degradation.
"My works are not narrative, they have a goal to work through the senses, to draw the
