Danijela Vitasovich was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand. She received a BFA from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in 2004, before moving to South Korea.
In her current home of Seoul, she has created a peculiar series of photorealistic oil paintings, each portraying different personae of the same person.
Vitasovich acts as her own model, but she doesn’t consider her paintings self-portraits. Not in the traditional sense, at least: ‘The women you see in my paintings aren’t me. They are me in parallel universes, or twins I never had. They are hypotheses or echoes of me.’
Her work has been exhibited both in New Zealand and Korea.
