Dina Bova

Dina is a bright star in Photo-Art universe. Her world is full of allegories, metaphors and multifaceted associations. This world is sometimes absurd and paradoxical, sometimes strange and surreal, but this world is a reflection of her true feelings. In this world, different emotions coexist side by side: irony, fear, joy, pain, sometimes even madness and despair, but there’s always a presence of hope and there’s never hatred. She doesn't not like to impose her point of view on the spectator,  she only slightly opens a door to a wonderland , where everyone can find something of his own.
For Dina, art is something that appeals to our senses and emotions, and not to our intellect and instincts. Her language is the language of intuitive characters and metaphors.  She tries to avoid flat and primitive clichés, which appeal to our basic instincts, such as sex, fear or disgust.
