Remeber – Forget: Meet Anastasia Kraynyuk.

Remember – Forget

Leaving Russia marked a turning point for Anasthasia’s artwork, infusing it with a newfound purpose. Her art now serves as a strong voice, reflecting her unique perspective shaped by her life experiences.

As a multidisciplinary artist, Anastasia Kraynyuk enjoys experimenting with colors, space, as well as the use of new techniques such as 3 D max.

Her inspiration is deeply rooted in architecture, particularly her early works influenced by Soviet modernism, as well as the places and people of her childhood. Anastasia turns her work of art into a testimony of her intentions.

– “I have a deep passion for expressing stories through art. Originally from Russia, I felt a strong urge to explore the human experience through my creative pursuits.

One of my earliest projects, called “Who are you?”, focused on the lives of individuals in small Russian regions who faced poverty. This project was very close to my heart because it allowed me to shine a light on the resilience and strength of those often overlooked by society.

Two years ago, I had to leave Russia due to the war in Ukraine. Since then, I’ve embarked on two remarkable projects that delve into the collective unconscious and the lasting impact of memory.

The first project, “Dreams during the war,” explores the dreams of people from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus amidst the turmoil of conflict. It serves as a powerful reflection of the human psyche during times of crisis, offering a glimpse into the hopes, fears, and aspirations that persist even in the face of adversity.

In my second project, titled “Scars,” I delve into the rich history of my own family, which has witnessed the ups and downs of the 20th century. By exploring both personal and collective memories, my goal is to shed light on the enduring marks that shape our identities and the strength that empowers us to move forward, even in the face of past burdens. Above all, I strive to learn from history’s lessons and avoid repeating its mistakes.

These projects have been incredibly meaningful to me, as they not only allow me to delve into the depths of the human experience but also serve as a way to connect and understand people across borders and generations”. – said Anastasia Kraynyuk.
