Daria Panfilova, originally from Saratov, now lives and works between Moscow and Sydney. In 2020, she was included in the IN ART top 100 young artists, and also rated by ARTEEX as one of the best contemporary artists of Russia. Her works have been exhibited in Russia, France, Spain and USA. She is currently engaged in a research project for the Antarctic Society of Tasmania.
Her work explores the image of the Arctic in the world…looking at its unique ecosystem, its stunning natural beauty and rich textures, the cultural patterns of the peoples of the region, and the challenges that it has been throwing down to humans and animals alike since its discovery.
