Anastasia Hohriakova is a contemporary Russian artist and painter whose genius stands at the intersection of Realism and Impressionism.
Born in 1980 in Moscow. Anastasia began the study of art at an early age. In 1999 she entered the Repin State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg. In 2001 Anastasia was transferred to the Department of Monumental Painting of the Surikov State Academic Art Institute in Moscow, where she worked under the supervision of the famous Russian artist E. Maksimov. Anastasia successfully completed six years of study in the institute in 2005.
Anastasia Hohriakova works in almost all genres of monumental and easel painting: interior murals and frescos, sgraffito and mosaic, portraits, genre scenes, landscapes and still life. Her artwork, both in painting and in composition, reflects the emotion, vivacity and energy with which she perceives the world around her. Her paintings subtly express mood and image distinguishing themselves by their integrity and clear, constructive composition.
The artist has created hundreds of art originals and completed a series of paintings for the play "There's enough simplicity for every sage", staged at the Maly Theatre in Moscow. Anastasia spent the summer of 2003 creating murals for the Saint Nicholas Cathedral in New York, the main Russian Orthodox parish in the United States, in celebration of its the 100th Anniversary. Her paintings are held in private collections throughout Russia, the United States, Great Britain, Italy, France, Hong Kong.
