Daniela Raytchev (UK)
Artist Statement/ BiographyRaytchev’s personal experience and observation of the human psyche have been a continuous source of inspiration for her work. Raytchev’s work enquires about social stigmas, especially with regards to mental health and equal rights, and promotes honesty and positive message that change is possible. Raytchev invites the public to participate, either via interviewing her subjects or via creating multi media artworks. With her signature usage of vibrant colours, the pieces she creates are playful, bold and approachable. The works encourage open conversation as many times they touch issues that are the subject of controversy.
