Katarse was born in a town in the South of Ukraine in 1997. Studied Philosophy in Lviv and European Cultures In Flensburg. Now based in Leipzig as a self-taught figurative artist she is mainly working with acrylic and oil paint, but also with digital media and spray paint. Her emotionally-loaded work explores textures and patterns of reveries. Death is a central element of her work, and death surrounded by living actors, celebrates the circularity, recurrence, taking, and giving back. Her works narrate the story of mortality, humorosity, and grief. Committed to figurative art she accentuates the unambiguous symbolism of the world of fantasies.
