Dasha Shleyeva

Dasha Shleyeva Bio:

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, Dasha Shleyeva moved to the UnitedĀ States at a young age. Her upbringing within two separate cultures andĀ undulations between two geographic homes has heavily molded her currentĀ work. An active exploration of the terrains within the traditions of herĀ countryā€™s history and geography of the stories within her genealogy plays aĀ vital role in her illustrations. Her work considers folklore, flora and fabric asĀ vessels for infusing past and current culture with color. There is a presenceĀ of a vast arrangement of moving, acting and reacting lines within which oneĀ can unfurl and untangle their own tale and perhaps even get lost in itĀ themselves.
