Kateryna Repa



Kateryna Repa was born in 1979, Odessa (Ukraine). Graduated from Odessa Hydrometeorolagical University. Lives and works in Odessa.
Works with painting, graphics, media art, sculpture, and art objects. She also participates in personal and collective exhibitions in London, Bertin, Italy, the USA, South Korea, Ukraine, etc.

In my works in the field of painting, sculpture, and media, I touch on the topic of ecology and the impact of human consumption on it, as well as the types of its consequences for the environment and us.
In graphics, these are different manifestations of the human essence, such as it is, in my opinion, at the given moment of development.
I also touch on the topic of evolution and its manifestations, linking it with technologies, their influence, possible themes of their manifestation. Therefore, in the project "Evolution" I touch upon the topic of possible teleportation, linking it with rapid development and penetration into all aspects of human activity, creating my reality one after another and superimposing it on the real world, inviting the viewer to plunge into my alternative reality, in which imaginations intersect my literary works and visual designer of clothes and accessories.
