Artist Name

Anastasia Dashevskaya

Born: 1990

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Dolgoprudny

Anastasia Dashevskaya - a russian artist born in 1990 in Moscow. Received one of the best academic art education in Russia at the Moscow State Academic Art Institute of V.I. Surikov, the Russian Academy of Arts; and Moscow State Academic Art School of 1905, the faculty of scenography. A member of the Moscow Union of Artists and a scholarship holder of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
Lives and works in the city of Dolgoprudny, Moscow region.

During her training period, she practiced in several Moscow theaters in various monumental techniques, such as Italian fresco, sgraffito, stained glass.

One of the major themes in her work emerged after visiting Kamchatka peninsula. In 2013 Anastasia finished a large work “The Life of Kamchatka” about the life and problems of small indigenous peoples during the Soviet times. This theme gave rise to a series of original landscapes of the far east of Russia in the form of mountains associated with portraits of real women, the indigenous inhabitants of those places. This series is currently being worked on.
Since 2015 she has been working with northeastern mountain landscapes and images of animals from the Far East.

Later her maternal experience formed the basis of the “Woman” series, where female figures contribute to original landscapes in the form of rivers, islands and mountains.
In painting, Anastasia prefers to work in oil on canvas. She relishes the technique of multi-layer painting, when the lower layer of paint slightly shines through the upper one. This technique traces her experience of working with Italian fresco and follows traditions of Russian iconography.
In her work Anastasia was influenced and inspired by artists such as Peter Doig, Mark Rothko and the Chinese artist Zhang Daqian. Anastasia's paintings were exhibited at the exhibitions in London and Rome and published in the Russian Art magazine. Her works are in private collections in Russia, USA, UK and China.

 



Anastasia Dashevskaya In The Studio

In the workshop, I like to hang sketches on the walls. I am working on three series of paintings at once and this helps me in my work.In winter I work in the city in my workshop. And in the summer I go to a country house and there I paint pictures on the terrace.

More About Anastasia Dashevskaya

Question IconWhat inspires you?

What inspires me the most is people and their stories. Music and culture of different nations. I saw a beautiful landscape and in my head it was combined with a portrait of a girl, and I got a picture of a mountain woman or a sleeping lake. I love to turn a human figure into a landscape, because I see how the states of nature and man are similar.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

As soon as I have an idea for a painting, I make a sketch with paints on a small format. I try to draw it in watercolor, pastel, make a collage. I try to feel in what technique it is better to write a plot on a large format. I love this search process. And when I find a solution, I start painting on canvas. I carefully plan how to apply layers when I paint in oils. It takes a long time to dry each coat of paint. And this makes it possible to work on several paintings at once.

Question IconWhat are 3 words that best describe your work?

Color, history, music

Question IconWho are some artists that have influenced your work?

Pieter Bruegel, David Hockney, Henri Matisse, Peter Doig, Mark Rothko and the Chinese artist Zhang Daqian

Question IconWhat is the most important tool when creating your work?

I can't do without my sketches. I always look at them when I write a big work.

Question IconWhat is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Keep sharing your creativity. The world wants to see him

Question IconWhere do you go for inspiration?

I can be inspired by a trip to the mountains or the sea. And meeting a new person
