“Metaphor and meaning of fashion were at the heart of surrealist visual language”, Richard Martin
To see more recent work go to:
Andrea Dankova was born in the heart of Europe-Slovakia.
Where she was fortunate enough to be raised in a small town near by Hungary
surrounded by a beautiful landscape.
By the time she was three she started to paint and her teacher in playschool sent her paintings to
competitions in China and various countries.
From the age of six to eighteen she has attended Art school and at the age of seventeen, she passed
the exam to enroll at the University of Bedfordhire in Luton, UK.
At the age of eighteen Andrea decided to leave home in order to pursue her passion in art and move to England.
In 2010 she has set-up exhibition in order to support charity in Student Union, Luton, Uk.
Furthermore, the same year she has contributed to
exhibition Expressing Expressions in The Hat Factory, Luton,Uk. Currently she is exhibiting in the University
of Bedfordshire in Luton, Uk as a part of The Degree Show.
While setting up these exhibitions she also doubled as the event photographer.
She currently lives 20 minutes from London working in fashion retail. Moreover she has been
working as an Intern at Bex Rox Jewelry Co. based in Notting Hill, UK from February 2011 to present.
Andrea will also be collaborating with renown graphic designer Aubrey Kurlansky to enhance her skill.
She has just completed her Ba Hons Art and Design Studies with a 2.1 highmark.Her work could
be described as fine art photography which points out contemporary social issues and it is
characterized by the feature of performance.Through the utilization of digital manipulation and surreal elements
her photographs present fashion photography as an art form.
Inspired by Jean Baudrillard, the subject her my work is to create
the hyper real world for viewers while acting in her photographs
- experiencing the real world. The photographs attempt to prevent
the viewer from thinking about contemporary social issues,
in order to let them fantasize, imagine, dream. In other words,
the purpose of her work is to take the viewer beyond reality.
Andrea is currently joining several communities online and applying for different competitions.
Her future plan is to promote and exhibit her art worldwide as she has recieved the call
for artist from The Artist Alley Gallery in San Francisco.
