Anastasia Eve is a Russian-born, Toronto-based visual artist. A nomad at heart, she loves to explore the power of art as a universal language. Anastasia's travel experiences, combined with a unique background in engineering, advertising and classical painting, allow her to connect often contradicting viewpoints and to bring a fresh perspective on modern society. Anastasia enjoys working in various settings: painting live at social events and charity auctions; working with illustration agencies and fine art galleries; creating murals on the city streets and building art installations. Her work is primarily figurative; a whimsical mix of fantasy and reality, blending together bold vibrant hues, energetic brushstrokes and subtle symbolism with a contemporary feel. Through the use of mixed media like oil, pastels and gold leaf, Anastasia evokes intricate dreamscapes and ethereal characters. Her paintings invite the viewer to reflect on the complex human nature, and to have a dialogue with the inner child living within each one of us.
