Germany / Iran
Gita’s journey began in Bukan, Iran, but at the age of 2, she moved with her family to Minsk, Belarus. By the time she was 8, they had settled in Berlin. Raised in a liberal household, she developed an innate appreciation for the beauty and uniqueness of the world. Although initially successful as a makeup artist, Gita longed for a deeper connection to her art. In her thirties, she made the courageous decision to leave the beauty industry behind and focus on her art, despite the challenges of making a living. This choice drove her to constantly refine her craft as an artist.
These five mythical creatures are powerful spirit guides and are meant to encourage us to trust our intuition and divine guidance. They unfold energies that help us overcome primal fears and sharpen our senses. They symbolize wisdom, awareness, emotions, and attention. They penetrate the veil of night and illuminate the darkness. They bring strength in turbulent times and provide the ability to see connections. The Naktaks free us from emotional burdens on the path to inner peace.
Berlin artist Gita Kurdpoor participated in the FOL last year (2022 Berlin Television Tower). Her art will be on display at the Berlin Cathedral this year. The Naktaks are part of the digital art series and are available as prints.
