Dara Piken (b. 1993) is a contemporary artist born and raised in New York City. The subject matter which Dara explores through her art is sociological and historical: irony, sarcasm, and popular culture. Through the years, Piken's style and technique have markedly evolved as she has connected her subjects throughout various historical eras, offering surprising juxtapositions in her use of mediums and reworked historical imagery as content. Piken prefers to touch on intense subjects in a subtle way, garnering attention from the likes of Refinery29, The Art Gorgeous, Guest of A Guest, and Bag Snob. Piken’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as at Diez y Seis at The Shore Club Miami, during Miami Art Week.
