Anastasiia Kruglova is a contemporary artist, author of the modular solution in creating abstract composition on canvas.
Anastasiia was born in Moscow, Russia on April 05, 1985. She was raised in a multicultural family: with Armenian and Ukrainian heritage, she was exposed to diverse cultural influences from a young age. She graduated from the Higher School of Economics with a degree in International Public Law, and later received a degree in Sound Engineering. Anastasiia received art education in the creative workshop of Olga Kovalik, prominent Russian artist, member of the RPO International Art Fund.
In the whirlwind of the modern world, it is sometimes impossible to penetrate, comprehend, feel the constantly changing reality around us. The artist, endowed with the gift of heightened perception of what he saw, lived, cherished in his fantasies of the surrounding world, has a huge advantage - the embodiment of his view on canvas. This is exactly what we observe in the Anastasiia Kruglova's art works.
Here is what the Author tells about her artistic path "Throughout my life, art remains the main language of communication with the outside world, which has no boundaries and difficulties in translation. I feel that audio environment has a greater impact on me rather than visual. And that is an inspirational point for me. I find each aspect of life quite unique and emotive: time, nature, visual and audible environment, science, silence, emotions etc. all simultaneously and interconnected – that’s what makes my artworks viable. In my paintings, not only color plays a huge role, but also the rhythms and repetitions of lines."
In a series of works dedicated to and inspired by various musical genres, we immediately feel what kind of music hits the viewer. This is facilitated by the rhythm of movements of the lines of force in the picture, the emotional color load.
For example, in the artwork Night of Jazz - this musical phenomenon manifests itself in absolutely every artistic move. We see the shadows dancing jazz. Jazz on clinking cymbals and a crying saxophone! Jazz in broken, abrupt, unpredictable forms! Jazz in a bright palette of colors! Jazz in appropriate fading shades. Jazz remains in the soul of the beholder, like an aftertaste from getting to know the picture.
In other works, the mood is created by using deep heavy tones and halftones, deliberately squeezed towards the center of the composition. The tension of the sense of survival in urban space is emphasized by the narrowing of the space and the almost overhanging of the depicted forms over the viewer.
