WHO I AM

Dina’s passion for street art/murals is derived from the dynamics of Pop Art and Culture expressed on canvas. Her freestyle spirit is characterized by a play on bold patterns and bright colors. The inspiration for her patterns comes from fabrics, nature and other elements in our modern life. She sees herself as a modern visual artist experimenting with mediums like canvas, collage, installation just to name a few.

PROFESSIONAL ILLUSTRATOR

Dina has done a lot of digital art and illustrations for over the 9 years since she graduated as a graphic designer. Some the art she has created has been part of her job as a graphic designer with the rest being part of her personal projects/exhibitions.Her digital background reveals its influence in her art work through her clean spaces, clean lines and utilizing visual contrast in her work.

VIDEO BLOGGER
