The last three years Anastasia studied fine arts at the studio of Pavel Nikonov and Yuri Shishkov, which is known to be the place where a severe style of Soviet art appeared and has been developing. The influence of this style is visible in Anastasia's art.
The artist describes her artworks as a mix of realism and cubism. Based on her personal experience, they represent moments in everyone's life.
"People and life around me inspire me to paint genre scenes...
I believe the human body is the most beautiful thing in life. That's why I prefer to draw people.".
Anastasia's personal exhibitions were held in Russia, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
