104 ARTIST SHOWCASE Diana Kirova

FlyVI, 2016, acrylic on canvas, 40 x 50 cm

Diana Kirova


ramatic forms of ships and sails emerge as if flying from clearice blue backgrounds in Diana Kirova’s expressive works in paint.

With the exclusion of any form of horizon in her paintings she creates a space without limits, where the never-ending expanse of sky merges with the depths of a deep aquamarine sea. There is a vivid sense of energy within the paintings, bursting forth like the crest of a wave.

Originally from Bulgaria, Kirova is now based in Rome. She has had a passion for painting since childhood, although her varied life has seen her having to cease her practice many times. In 2008 she returned to the canvas, and has exhibited regularly in Rome throughout the last nine years, with three solo shows this year.
