When I contacted Dasha I asked her how she was and to tell me a bit about herself. She said, ‘I’m not very well. I can’t recollect what I did last night. And something about me – I drink beer and listen to metal, and I live in Russia.’ What more could you need to know?
Dasha’s drawings have that trashy Neckface vibe, which you’d totally expect from her self-description, but are also kind of like Beavis & Butthead on an acid bender (Beavis & Butthead – Behind the Music) – and her photos underneath (and her regular photos) make Russia look amazing. Full of crusty punks skateboarding and people getting naked.
