Diana Kirova started painting from an early age, and yet she grew up hearing “Painting doesn't give you food" from her father. At the age of 7, she was selected to enter and study painting at Palazzo dei Pionieri. She then tookdrawing and perspective lessons from the famous Architect Susy Aronova, and went to the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. As an artist she has painted landscapes, figures, animals, still life, portraits and flying birds. The object of her work is freedom: of words, of thought, of action. The effects of tears and lacerations have become her signature. She uses glimpses of sails as a symbol of freedom, of movement and active participation.
