“Yard in Romni, Ukraine”
20 x 32 in.
Born and raised in St. Petersburg (Russia), Anastasia Dukhanina is one of the finest young Russian painters. Four years ago she graduated from St.Petersburg’s Repin Art Academy.
A member of the St. Petersburg Artist Union and the group Realism Without Borders, she paints mostly en plein air and, with her easel, catches the mood and the beauty of the modern life around her.
This last year was exciting for her. Anastasia traveled for the first time to the U.S., and her travels brought great success. She received four awards from two plein air events. At the Driggs Diggs Plein Air she won three awards: Honourable mention on the first quick draw, First Place People’s Choice on the second quick draw, and Best of Show in the main competition, judged by Scott Christensen. At the Plein Air Rockies competition, she won the PleinAir Magazine Award of Excellence, judged by Bonnie Graff and Ulrich Gleiter.
