Anastasia Mastilovic was born in Moscow.
After her birth, she moved with her family to New York, USA. There she often visited the Metropolitan Museum, as well as the ancient abbey The Met Cloisters, and painted there for many hours. Returning to Moscow at the age of 8, Anastasia enrolled in a children's art studio, where she was under the tutelage of the famous artist Igor Gerasimov, a master of watercolors in Russia. During this period, Anastasia studied many different techniques and some of her ceramic works were exhibited at the Tretyakov Gallery (2002-2005).
After graduating from art school, Anastasia entered the Moscow Academic Art School, specializing in the restoration of icons and paintings. Almost all conservation and restoration was carried out on authentic works from museum collections dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Two major museums included the State Historical Museum and the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve.
Finally, after graduating from college, she was admitted to the Moscow State Academic Art Institute (2017-2019) named after V.I. Surikov, majoring in Graphics. At the Faculty of Graphics, she was engaged in illustration and book design, easel graphics, posters, typography, graphic design. There was also the study of various techniques: lithography, etching and linocut. Anastasia's paintings were exhibited at the Tretyakov Gallery, State Historical Museum, Moscow Union of Artists, Central House of Artists and other international exhibitions.
She now lives and works in the USA.
