    Daria Konshtik was born in Makeyevka, Ukraine, in 1985 and immigrated to Israel in 1995.  Konshtik graduated Minshar school of art in 2017. Her graduate exhibition ‘Games People Play’ was mentioned by Hagit Peleg Rotem in her article about ‘Graduates of 2017’ published in ‘Portfolio’ magazine. Since 2018 Konshtik studies at The Open University of Israel to receive B.A. in Humanities and Social Sciences, and in 2019 – 2020, Konshtik studied photography in Camera Obscura school of Art (Tel Aviv). Since graduating from ‘Minshar’, Daria has participated in dozens of group exhibitions in Israel.

    Daria Konshtik is a multidisciplinary artist, expressing herself through painting, drawing, performance, installation, photography and video-art. She examines topics such as identity, gender, feminism, analytical psychology, childhood and racism. As someone born in Ukraine (USSR) and raised in Israel, Konshtik deals with questions regarding the influence and convergence of Russian and Ukrainian cultures in the realm of Israeli discourse. Konshtik examines her identity as a Russian woman in Israel, by way of a traditional Russian doll – Matryoshka, serving as her alter ego.
    In her works, Daria uses a rich palette of colors; which allows her to disseminate the grains of naïveté and infantility of her internal world, into the realm of imagery. ​Traditional symbols, folklore and cultural customs in Konshtik’s works are portrayed by psychological content rowing through the tunnel of the conscious and unconscious, between the personal and the collective.
