Profile

Marina Astakhova

Placeholder
Marina Astakhova

Born: 1968

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Moscow

 

Contemporary abstract artist, inspired by nature contrasts, bold colours and shapes. I create abstract interior artworks using acrylic paint and black-and-white graphic works.
As a manifesto – strong vision to enjoy life, create harmony and positive emotions with my art.
Love for drawing and inspiration by avantgarde art heritage, observation of the world around us has resulted in a constant search. Search for unique compositions, forms and color combinations to create interior paintings. Techniques of suprematism, orphism, op-art and abstract expressionism give me the opportunity to transform visual images into vibrant emotions.
The process of creativity for me is an intuitive desire to fill the original white void with bright colors, clear bold lines and figures, develop a memorable image on the wall, WOW-factor, that attracts viewers’ attention and produce a unique atmosphere of a residential interior or public space.
Currently create modern geometric abstract art and interior objects. Based in Moscow, Russia. Artworks are in private collections in Russia, France, UK, Dubai, Hong-Kong.
Represented by galleries: ArtIs gallery (WinZavod), Rose Gallery, SABROS gallery.

About Marina Astakhova


IconInspires

What inspires you?

Making art is an ongoing learning process – you learn from nature, from changing world around us, from other artists and from personal experience. Every artwork is like a next step in a long exciting journey.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I never thought of doing sketches for my works, my creative process is semi- automated. When the work is started I have certain pattern in my mind, which is colored in intuitive manner. In many cases, very typical for abstract art, the work itself start to lead the artist for further actions … This process is irresistible attractive and painful, collaboration with your own creation. With wooden sculptures I start attaching pieces to each other like kids play with wooden blocks until they come into something interesting.

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

The more I work the stronger is the feeling that I enjoy being a multidisciplinary artist – and this is the influence of world acclaimed designers and architects. Art for me is part of interior design. Among Russian artists my favorite are avant-garde masters including Kazimir Malevich and Lazar Lisitsky, Lubov Popova for her prints and shapes, Aristarch Lentulov for vibrant colors and Igor Shelkovsky for excellent mix of abstract paintings and art objects.
