Portfolio of the day
Who are you?
My name is Nikolina. I am a conceptual photographer and visual artist. I express my eerie visions through screenshots of an imagined story. I guide the viewer on a journey through the frames and visual interpretations of my fictional worlds. My motives are sometimes dark and gloomy and often present dreamlike ambients and monstrous creatures. I personify them with my state of consciousness, inner conflicts and excessive dreamy nature. I use photography as a main tool for my artworks, although I often combine it with other digital techniques. I take photos on a daily basis and has an immense database from which I choose the ones that are appropriate for my artworks. I then combine specific photographic fragments into complex montage until I get a realistic scenery. I often use self-portraits as characters within my visual stories and therefore become an interactive narrator, a storyteller who guides a viewer through my fantasy landscapes.
