  • Biography
    Dasha Pears is an award-winning artist, using conceptual fine-art photography as her main medium. Completely self-taught in photography, she is materializing her life experiences, realizations, feelings, and conclusions about life in surrealistic, sometimes dreamy, clean, and peaceful works. Her style is characterized by unique compositions, restrained color choices, and finishing details that lead to whimsical and clever images.

    Dasha’s works were included in the list of 35 Most Influential Conceptual Portrait Photographers by the influential ExpertPhotography portal, were exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in France, Italy, Austria, Finland, Poland, and Russia, and featured multiple times in SaatchiArt & ArtFinder editorial collections and catalogs. Dasha’s photographs can also be found in private collections in Spain, Australia, the Netherlands, the UK, and the United States, as well as on covers of books published all over the world.

    Dasha’s mission in life is to create imagery and inspire others, whether by her artworks or by the act of creation itself. Dasha deeply believes that if more people focus on creation instead of destruction the world will become a better place and there will be less hate, harm, and sorrow.

    Dasha lives in Helsinki, Finland, and shoots her surreal photographs all over the world.

From latex-wearing dominas, neurotic housewives, bitches, witches, and virgins, we want to show everything, as well the things that lie in between.

    Event: Old is the New "New"

    Dates: Sept. 2, 2020 - Sept. 12, 2020

    Venue: ERARTA MUSEUM AND GALLERY OF CONTEMPORARY ART, St. Petersburg, Russia

    Project Exhibition "Old is the New "New"

    The fashion industry will never be the same. The pandemic radically changed everything: the way people shop, behave, and think. Global brands stare into the abyss of the impending recession, many of them (such as Gucci, Armani, etc.) declare a new approach to creating collections, producing their goods, and even announce entire fresh brand philosophies, focused on sustainability, ecology-conscious production, moderation, recycling and reuse of old materials and items. That’s crucial not only for the survival of businesses with decades-long histories, but also to serve the changing demands of the general public and fashion addicts.

    What will the revitalized fashion industry look like? This project is our speculation on the possible options based on the Finnish fashion culture traditions, deep-rooted in love to mother-nature and huge respect for giving new lives to old items.

    Event: Imagine Music

    Dates: Jan. 31, 2020 - Sept. 30, 2020

    Venue: Gallery Fast Creative, Heslinki, Finland

    What makes you change your mood in seconds? Not so many things in life have this power, but music does. Music creates an atmosphere. It has the power to deepen or even transform our visual experiences. It speaks directly to our emotions and can change them in seconds.

    Music is even more powerful when we observe its effect on the imagination. Music builds imagination and creativity. When we see pictures - our imagination does not get stronger, however, when we close our eyes and hear a sound, our imagination can go wild and create all sorts of things.

    This project is an attempt to imagine music in a visual, a take on what is going on in a musician’s and listener’s minds and souls while a melody is played and heard. Each image is inspired by a particular music piece and reflects the photographer’s emotions while listening to it.

Biography

Dasha Pears is an award-winning artist, using conceptual fine-art photography as her main medium. Completely self-taught in photography, she is materializing her life experiences, realizations, feelings, and conclusions about life in surrealistic, sometimes dreamy, clean, and peaceful works. Her style is characterized by unique compositions, restrained color choices, and finishing details that lead to whimsical and clever images.

Dasha’s works were included in the list of 35 Most Influential Conceptual Portrait Photographers by the influential ExpertPhotography portal, were exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in France, Italy, Austria, Finland, Poland, and Russia, and featured multiple times in SaatchiArt & ArtFinder editorial collections and catalogs. Dasha’s photographs can also be found in private collections in Spain, Australia, the Netherlands, the UK, and the United States, as well as on covers of books published all over the world.

Dasha’s mission in life is to create imagery and inspire others, whether by her artworks or by the act of creation itself. Dasha deeply believes that if more people focus on creation instead of destruction the world will become a better place and there will be less hate, harm, and sorrow.

Dasha lives in Helsinki, Finland, and shoots her surreal photographs all over the world.
