Katerina Vuletich was born and raised in Colorado. Starting at a young age, she had a deep affection for drawing; and, as the years progressed, so did her artistic exploration and discovery. At Regis University, under the mentorship of artist Anthony Ortega and art historian Barbara Coleman, she became interested in mixed media collage, Neo-Expressionism, and Pop Art. Frequently using more than ten different mediums in a single collage, her art pushes the limits of her canvas and often touches upon an implicit conversation that she believes already exists within popular culture.
Currently, Katerina is working at a shelter for homeless youth, called Urban Peak, as an outreach case manager and art group facilitator. With the many hats she wears and the many people she meets, she has grown a true appreciation for experimentation and collaborative work - an art form that celebrates the individual as positioned within the living, breathing collective.
In this show, Katerina displays a wide range of personal work. This includes larger works exploring culture and femininity and smaller experimental works made and framed primarily with recycled materials. In the included mural, titled “Pieces” or “Pieces of Denver”, Katerina and three contributing artists - Angel Estrada, John Knudsen, and Connor Lafferty - explore their personal perspective within a communal body.
