My Bio
My art is a world of allegories, metaphors and multifaceted associations. This world is sometimes absurd and paradoxical, sometimes strange and surreal, but this world is a reflection of my true feelings. In this world, different emotions coexist side by side: irony, fear, joy, pain, sometimes even madness and despair, but there?s always a presence of hope and there?s never hatred. I don't like to impose my point of view on the spectator. I only slightly open a door to a wonderland, where everyone can find something of his own.

For me, art is something that appeals to our senses and emotions, and not to our intellect and instincts. My artworks are addressed not to reason, but to the spectators? feelings. I try to avoid flat and primitive clichés, which appeal to our basic instincts, such as sex, fear or disgust. Perhaps this is why various spectators interpret my works differently, according to their own perception of the world. This is exactly what I am after.

Recently, I find a lot of inspiration in Biblical stories from the books of Genesis and Ecclesiastes. What inspires me is its mystics and philosophy of life. In my artworks I improvise on these stories, not in an illustrative way, but emphasizing on philosophical aspects.

I think that it's not important how an artist creates his work. It can be created with any tool and any medium, but it should speak for itself and convey a very special mood. It should need no explanation, no elaboration and no apologies. It can be very aesthetic or the opposite of it. The most important thing - is freeing the imagination, so "the sky is the limit"...

Hi everybody :) To those who missed my new artworks - finally I'm back to DeviantArt :-) During my absence I've done many things, such as got married :-) But that's not all! I've also participated in organization of a very interesting exhibition with my artworks and 2 other talented artists. We've published an interesting article about the story behind this exhibition. Would be happy if you read it http://www.bsw-art.com/journal/three-doors-to-wonderland and leave your feedback. To those who live/visit in Israel - there's still a change to see it... Ha! Take care, Dina :) P.S. those who have facebook - join http://www.facebook.co

Hi, my name is Dina Bova and I just joined today... :-) I want to share my art here and will be happy to see your comments. My vision of art: A real art is something extraordinary. A unique art is something that expresses you and only you. Art with a signature is something that can be recognizable even if there's no artist's name written on the work... I think it's not important how you create your work. It is important what the work transmits to people's souls and what feelings it awakens. Art work can be created with any tools possible, but it should speak for itself and transfer a very special mood. It should need no explanation, no
