Darja Štefančič

Biography

The painter Darja Štefančič was born on 27 October 1957 in Postojna (Slovenia), where she still lives and works.

After her youthful acquiring of artistic skills at several art schools and within different artistic orientations, she was researching the art of painting for twenty-five years on her own, away from the public eye, and she did not exhibit her works during this period.

Alongside, she delved into the heritage of the humanities – literature and philosophy, which were helpful in her search for a visual language of her own.

After her first public reappearance in 2007, she has presented her artwork at numerous solo and group exhibitions in her native country and abroad.
