Dasha Shishkin’s contemporarily surreal paintings and prints

Dasha Shishkin’s lively line-based paintings may differ in content from figurative to completely abstract, but they all contain the same energy and pulse of consistent color and expression. Some of the artist’s works are reminiscent of post-impressionist scenes from cafes, bars, and clubs with multiple pieces made of incredibly similar scenes and a general loose feeling of nightlife. Shishkin keeps an element of variety and unpredictability through her use of different surfaces that she applies her line and color to. She paints on cloth, canvas (stretched and unstretched), mylar, and other materials. These sometime include different folds, imperfections, and reactions to the application of medium. Check out the sample of her expressive work below!
