Diana Shpungin is a Latvian-born artist based in Brooklyn whose work includes drawing, sculpture, installation, hand-drawn animation, video and sound.

Reviews of her work have appeared in publications such as Artforum, New York Magazine, The Village Voice, and The New York Times.

Diana intended to study collective memory and its functions through existing and destroyed architecture in St. Petersburg. She hoped to use this research to create a public art project with community involvement for the 2018 Art Prospect Festival. This new public project built on a recent large scale project Drawing Of A House (Triptych), which was a monumental, participatory work for SiTE:LAB in partnership with Habitat for Humanity and the City of Grand Rapids in the US.
