Darja Popolitova (1989) is the Estonian jewellery artist and designer. She is currently a PhD researcher and guest lecturer at Estonian Academy of Arts. Her approach to jewellery art emerged during studying at Estonian Academy of Arts as well as at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. She also honed her skills at Florian Landstätter’s studio in Vienna. Darja received the Young Jewellery Award (2015) and has been exhibited in Holland, Germany, Brazil and Spain among others. The topics of her works include androgyny, erotics and digital culture.
Darja’s collectible jewellery is for big ego and can be treated as contemporary relics. Involving high technologies into a creative process, these works merge innovative and sensual worlds — digitally modified baroque treasures.
