Anastasia Bazanova

In 1978, Anastasia Bazanova was born into a family of artists in the ancient Russian town of Kaluga.

Bazanova's art calling did not awaken in early childhood so her parents had to insist that she study fine arts. Later in life the artist expressed deep gratitude to her parents for helping her to realize where her future lay. As a result Bazanova studied at the renowned St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts where she focused her efforts primarily in the graphics department, under the guidance of Professor Pakhomov.

Bazanova's artistic interest lies in nudes and landscapes. The way in which Bazanova executes her subject matter shows exactly how she underwent her classical training. On paper, Bazanova's artistic world is an idealistic one in complete peace and where quiet reigns. Warm sunlight illuminates a landscape or a statutory nude and the female characters within her works are usually depicted as flawless, resembling the women of Greek mythologies.

Bazanova often returns to her pieces to become fully absorbed in altering fine details while ensuring that the composition remains in absolute harmony.
