Anastasia Kondratovitch is a professional artist and painter with a strong artistic background. She holds a Master’s degree in Arts, with a specialization in oil painting, from the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Anastasia has been an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists since 2012. Since moving to Canada in 2006, she has been participating in various art exhibitions in the Greater Vancouver area and the US.
Her medium of choice is oil on canvas, which is an ideal match to her symbolic style that bridges the gap between the classical school painting and decorative art. Her paintings often contain figurative elements that transcend the reality of everyday life.
She strongly believes in the power of creativity and art education. Anastasia is particularly passionate about the idea of early exposure to art and the creative process. She views painting as a way of getting closer to ourselves.
I would like to stress the importance of process over results. I really want my students to enjoy what they are doing. My goal is to help them be mindful about what they create and why. I believe this will help them accept their art and progress.
