Danijela Krha Purssey

Annandale, New South Wales

Arts enthusiast extraordinaire, curator

A lifelong art lover, Danijela is passionate about providing an alternative art media outlet focused on promoting Australian figurative artists. Since 2013, she has taken ‘beautiful.bizarre’ from an art appreciation Facebook page to an internationally recognised art blog and magazine with over 600,000 social media followers. She has also curated exhibitions in Australia, Japan and the US, often giving home-grown artists their first chance to show their work. The grant will enable Danijela to grow the largely volunteer-based ‘beautiful.bizarre’ into a profitable business. “Over the past three years I have created an internationally recognised brand in the non-mainstream art community with an excellent reputation. I want to promote Australian artists to the world, enabling them to grow their own artistic practice.”
