Danijela Krha Purssey

Co-Founder & Editor in Chief
Beautiful Bizarre Magazine

Danijela Krha Purssey is an entrepreneur and the Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder of Australian based international new contemporary art magazine, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.

She is deeply passionate and committed to her vision to help shift the paradigm in the global contemporary arts industry regarding what is defined and accepted as contemporary art.

Danijela has created a carefully curated, unique contemporary arts experience via all the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine touch points, that inspire, encourage, grow, and promote emerging and leading “new” contemporary creatives both locally and around the world.

Born in Croatia, she migrated to Australia at the age of three. From a young age Danijela was drawn to art, fashion and the aesthetics of beauty and original creativity.

Danijela founded the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine in 2013 with her husband, Richard Purssey, through a desire to showcase new and emerging artists to the world. In the 4+ years since the launch of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine she have released 17 print issues, published over 1200 web articles, developed and launched the interactive digital magazine, curated 4 exhibitions in three countries, and shared the work of countless creatives from all corners of the globe across the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine social media platforms which have grown to over 800,000 followers.

Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has inspired creatives to pursue a life and career in the arts and helped careers grow via the exposure of their work. Danijela has given artists and photographers, many of whose work is not widely accepted by the fine art establishment, a voice, a platform, and a tribe.

Danijela has forged global connections with artists, collectors, gallery owners and their communities to further her vision for the new contemporary art scene and to help galleries and creatives thrive.

In late 2016 Danijela was awarded the prestigious AMP Foundation ‘Tomorrow Makers’ Award, and grant funding to expand Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.
