Dasha Belokrylova

  • Dasha was born in 1995 in Moscow, Russia.

  • At the age of 11 she moved to the United Kingdom, and spent five years in the english boarding schools. Even though there were so many subjects to choose from, she was the child who would always find time to draw. Maybe because it was the best way to escape from the world she never fully understood...

  • At 17 Dasha moved to London, where she became a student at the Fine Arts College in Hampstead. This was the official beginning of herself as an artist, where she explored painting and graphic design.

  • After two years of art A-Levels, Dasha joined the Wimbledon College of Arts in UAL. Here she learned the importance of philosophy behind every artwork, and explored what subject matter is interesting to her. However, after one year she decided that Wimbledon art world wasn't quite for her...

  • In 2015 Dasha started the Intensive Drawing & Painting Program in the Florence Academy of Art. During these years she learned the old master’s method of sight-size, the anatomy of a human body, and oil painting process in full depth. Studying the nude every day gave her confidence to draw believable figures from imagination, which is what she always wanted.

  • After Dasha finished the three year certificate program, she was offered a unique opportunity to stay as an artist in residence. The offer included a teaching job as well as a studio to work for one more year. This gave her enough experience to teach the way of drawing and painting to others who want to learn and improve.

  • Currently Dasha is a Principal Instructor in the Intensive Drawing Program and the Sculpture Drawing Program at the Florence Academy of Art.

  • Dasha also gives private drawing and painting lessons.
