Anastasiia Danilenko is a Russian artist. While Anastasiia Danilenko obtained a degree in Graphic Design, her artistic area of occupation is painting, with an emphasis on portraiture. While portraiture is typically more traditional, Danilekno’s colourful portraits introduce new life into the genre.
“I write images and forms. Colour spots and lines. My characters have their eyes closed. Without looking into a person’s eyes, we are able to see much more,” says the artist.
Anastasiia Danilenko’s portraits are confessional, capturing how she perceives herself, others and the world around her. Anastasia Danilenko is not concerned with merely depicting accurate representations of appearance in her portraits; Rather, she attempts to convey the very essence of the shell that contains the person she is depicting. In waist portraits, the figurative load is carried by gesture and the general position of the body itself. Anastasiia Danilenko always starts with black, painting over the entire surface of the canvas with black paint before imbuing it with her favourite range of greens and pinks. The colours become more saturated on the black base, giving the image a black contour and a rigid structure. Out of this black nothingness, Anastasiia carves alluring images full of her frankness.
