Andrea Dasha Reich
Andrea Dasha Reich was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1946 to an artist mother and a lawyer, political activist father. Her Prague home was filled with original artworks by family and friends. This rich environment inspired her career in art and design. Her family relocated to Israel in 1960 where she began her personal art exploration at a kibbutz. Supportive instructors sent her to study under modernists Moshe Rosenthalis and Yosse Stern at the Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem.
Dasha moved to New York City in 1966 where she studied photography and worked in the textile and fashion design industry where her work was acknowledged with many industry awards. She also designed her own boutique and fashion line for Madison Avenue. Through all of this commercial success she dreamed of returning to her personal painting.
The 1990’s led Dasha back to her fine art roots and she began to develop a unique personal style. Incorporating her talent and vision for color, texture and pattern with traditional and non traditional mediums Dasha creates bold, Murano glass-like paintings that are celebrations of color, movement and light.
