Katya Syta

She was born in 1986 in Ukraine, in the city of Kyiv. As a child, she attended classes in painting and academic drawing. In 2008, she received a master's degree in finance from Kyiv National Economic University of Vadim Hetman (KNEU). From 2008 to 2011 she worked in the field of insurance. In 2011, she became interested in modern art and charity, participated in the organization of the charity auction «Our Children» with the support of the auction house «Dukat». In 2013, together with Konstantin Klimashenko and with the support of the Dukat Gallery, she organized the second charity auction «Our Children», which took place at the Triptych Art Gallery. The lots of the auction were works by famous contemporary Ukrainian artists, such as: O. Roitburd, A. Kryvolap, O. Zhyvotkov.

The first work called New Inspiration was made in April 2018. The fourth work #5 Pain was purchased the day after creation. Already in May 2018, Katya took part in the Jewish Art Festival at the Dukat Gallery. In September of the same year, two works by the artist appeared at the international exhibition of women's art «Numeri esse: Rhythms of Being» at the Museum of History of Kyiv. In April 2019, the works were presented in Rome at the art festival Nuova primavera at the Palazzo Velli Expo.

A personal exhibition of collages entitled «Through other people's faces» was held in early 2021 at the Museum of History of Kyiv. Developing an art career in Ukraine, she felt the need to promote collage as an art on the art market of Ukraine. This was the impetus for Katya in March 2021 to organize together with Annete Sagal and Olga Syta CUTOUT - the first in Ukraine festival of modern collage, which featured artists in the direction of collage from 11 countries and Ukraine.
In the summer, together with Annete Sagal and Olga Syta, they opened the first in Ukraine collage workshop space CUTOUT COLLAGE STUDIO.

Every year I became more and more interested in contemporary art, and galleries became a part of my life.
2014 was a landmark year when I started my business by opening KS Design Studio for tailoring. The case made me realize
that I want to spend even more time creative. I am always overwhelmed by many emotions, which I invest in my collages.
My tools are pieces of fabric, colors, textures. They create a composition of thoughts and feelings.
