Darina Smolkina, magic realism and symbolism artist was born and raised in Kyiv capital of Ukraine.

“When I was 6 years old my parents presented me with a fact, I need to make the first serious decision in my life, I had to choose a second school where I want to study. In Ukraine, you would normally go to the normal school and also another one which is more like classes, swimming pool, ballet, and others. I had a few variations, it was dance classes, piano, or art school, a very typical list for a girl my age.

Well, I was just 6 years old, and I didn’t take it seriously, but now I know, back then I made the best and the most important decision in my life. It was Art.It was a school that turned to college, and 10 years of studying in college named after S. Lifaria on the Art faculty and 4 years of Kyiv College of Technology and Design in my hometown, I moved to Portugal, this time I was 19 y. o. and this is was the second very important decision I have ever made because at this step my life changed from a student to a professional artist.I think the canvas is like my diary because all the works I make are part of my life story, it’s like a book just with pictures and numbers of pages, you don’t need to read it, you just watch it until it is over.”
