Anastasia Fedorova is an award-winning Ukrainian Canadian painter. Anastasia was born in Kiev, Ukraine. She is now located in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she resides and works.
Anastasia says about her work:
"For me, creating art means to be present in the moment. My mode of perception of this world is made through a direct experience of the immediate presence. My goal is coming back to the ultimate source, which is nature, and to ourselves. I believe that nature and natural forms are the pathways to contemplation and creation.
All my paintings start from nature where I am trying to transport the viewer to the better, sometimes idealized world. I see nature as a teacher, who makes me investigate the shape, color and ephemeral movements of the environment. By using a vibrant colorful palette and thick loaded brushstrokes I am emphasizing the dynamism and movement in nature.
I believe that beauty helps to educate our souls. Ugliness and chaos, on the other hand, destroys our spirit and prevents us from growing and developing. The most important purpose of art, therefore, is not only to make people feel better, but also help them to become better versions of themselves."
Anastasia won numerous International art awards and has a long history of solo and group exhibitions including: IX Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy; 55th Venice Biennale, International art project Passagio in Laguna in Venice, solo exhibition at National Museum of Art in Kiev. Anastasia`s artworks can be found in many corporate and private collections across Canada and around the world.
Anastasia is an Active Member of Federation of Canadian Artists and International Association of Artists. She lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
Anastasia Fedorova learned oil painting and drawing from celebrated Ukrainian painters for more than a decade before attending the Institute of Art and Design in Kiev. She later studied Art History at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
