Born in 80s in Soviet Lithuania (independent Lithuania since 90s), Anastasya was destined to explore new cultural identities every decade of her life. At 19 she moved to study in Jerusalem, at 26 - to Berlin. As a result, fluency in English, Hebrew, German, Russian and Lithuanian languages presented her a deep insight into different cultures and lifestyles. Nevertheless, it was the 90s post soviet vibe and survival lifestyle, which left a permanent trace in her perception and helped form her visual language.
