Anastasiia Franchuk was born in Odessa, Ukraine in 1995. She grew up by the Black Sea where she spent her childhood. Inspired by seeing the horizon line being blended between heaven and earth and colorful reflections on the water started to bring dreaminess and mystery into her first paintings.
At the age of 15 she attended Grekov Odessa Art School - the oldest and one of the most renowned schools of art in the country where she was professionally trained. After the graduation she moved to Western Ukraine and studied at Transcarpathian Art Institute for two more years learning about authentic Ukrainian art and folk crafts. While traveling to various countries she did different art programs in the United States, Europe and Asia. She also apprenticed under world renowned artists John and Elli Milan at Milan Art Institute in Arizona. She now uses multiple mediums such as oil, acrylics, caran d'Ache, and Krink pens, along with many mixed techniques to achieve her finished pieces.
Her vividly colorful paintings involve real life inspirations, mostly horses and other animals that carry personal meaning. She connects with the horse on a deep emotional level. Wild horses have captured her heart with their beauty, freedom and untamed inner spirit. She loves to ride and galloping on a horse also making her feel unlimited and set free.
Anastasiia plans to continue to travel and evolve her art. Franchuk says: “I believe that art is a great tool which makes a difference in this world. It doesn’t have language or cultural barriers and it’s speaks directly to the collectors heart”. As an artist she wants to inspire others to believe in their dreams and pursue their destiny.
Her art could be found in private collections in United States, Israel and Europe.
