Veera Krouglov graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee in 2016 and is the winner of the Art in Healthcare purchase prize, with funding from the Turtleton Trust.
Veera's interwoven images of human faces and animals, and animals in unexpected places reflect a dream like snapshot - the story doesn't seem to have a beginning or an end, the focus is in that moment in time and you might find it hard to remember the details the moment you turn away from the artwork.
'My work is an unravelling of themes, characters and personalities that I continuously pick up from various sources. I am fascinated with the endless details of life; how little birds move in that strange twitchy way, how people or animals carry themselves and interact with each other and how plants can grow in the most unexpected places. All this information gets jumbled up in my brain and turns into some sort of fantastical caricature of life. My practice consists of drawing, making ceramics and other sculptural work, making small publications and more recently animation' Veera Krouglov
