Katrin Starostenko

Pintora

Katrin Starostenko nació en Ucrania, transcurrió su infancia y adolescencia viajando y observando las injusticias sociales y crecientes  problemas  ecológicos.  De esta forma maduró como la persona y artista, y fue definiendo  la dirección en su trabajo creativo. Sean instalaciones, performances u otras manifestaciones artísticas, están basadas en concienciar dichas problemáticas actuales. Ahora reside en Mallorca, donde crea inspirada por la belleza y asume como propias la sensibilidad y necesidades que vive la isla a día de hoy. Utiliza materiales, herramientas y recursos sostenibles en  sus proyectos para minimizar la huella ecológica de su creación. Desde la mirada curiosa de una niña, crea ilimitados juegos y experimentos a partir de materiales biodegradables y reciclados de nuestro día a día. Sus métodos de expresión artística abren la posibilidad de participar en numerosas exposiciones locales e internacionales, así como de colaborar con científicos y ecologistas, músicos, bailarines y otros artistas, y comunidades con necesidades especiales.

Las obras se encuentran en colecciones privadas en Rusia, Ucrania, Holanda, Italia, Alemania, Polonia, Francia, España, Georgia, Turquía, India y Nepal.

Objectives

As an artist I am interested especially in working towards community-based solutions for the environmental problems, using ecological (biodegradable or recycled) materials and methods to achieve these aims.
