About Marta Syrko

Marta Syrko was born in Lviv, where she later attended the local art academy to study art theory and history. She then developed her photographic style using the understanding of colour, composition, and aesthetics she acquired there. She looks for inspiration in nature, not only in native Ukrainian landscapes but far beyond. However, her studio has always been the centre of her work: this is where she can play with light and create illusions using mirrors, flowers, smoke, and water. Marta has presented her work in Paris, London, Arles, and Linz over the previous ten years. She is currently based in Amsterdam, where she develops new projects and sells her earlier ones. The pieces will soon be available via Frenchman Gallery.
