Raindrops in New York
South Brooklyn contemporary artist Diana Jaworowski, otherwise known as Daika, whose signature works range from a variety of intricately detailed cartoons to abstract oil paintings, loves to merge vibrant colors in combinations that wouldn’t traditionally be advised to do so. This is because she is most influenced by the works of Vincent van Gogh and the colorful architecture in her family’s hometown of Kiev, Ukraine. While a student at John Jay College of Criminal Justice pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Public Administration, Jaworowski couldn’t help but entertain her clandestine relationship with art history and painting/drawing classes consistently. She recently served one term in AmeriCorps and worked in Department of Homeless Services External Affairs and Communications unit. Jaworowski couldn’t possibly predict her next endeavor. Her artistic journey took many twists and turns that ultimately connected together with all of her passions and values.
