Meet feature Artist Dagni - as seen in the December Haze magazine Artist Centrefold, presented by Day Gallery in Blackheath. In 2012 Dagni completed a
Diploma of Fine Arts at Kingswood TAFE.
The diploma provided a setting in which Dagni could explore and refine her artistic practice, determining the appropriate mediums allowing her to effectively
communicate her personal philosophy and ideas. Finding voice in oil painting and truth in ink, she began her journey as a self-directed artist.
You may glimpse Dagni’s work down an alleyway; come face to face with one around a street corner or pasted on brick walls of empty carports or abandoned
buildings. Dagni portrays her cultural heritage through her subjects evoking contrast within this post-industrial globalised setting.
Born in the Mountain Province of Sagada in the Philippines, her indigenous heritage echo’s a tribe of people documented for their past practices of head
hunting and their past and continued rituals around family life. A common theme throughout all her works is the truth of a line.
Dagni currently has artworks on display at the Elephant Bean Café, and the Savoy Café in Katoomba. She is currently working towards
a solo exhibition at Day Fine Art in Blackheath in 2018.
