Anastasya Martynova is a multi disciplinary artist and designer based in London.
Martynova most recently studied Historic Carving at City and Guilds of London Art School, where she developed the craft-based discipline that lies at the root of her practice.
A previous background of set design and art direction for the BBC, has allowed her to branch out and collaborate on a range of diverse projects ranging from fine surface design commissions to large-scale sculptural installations.
Aside from her own practice in London, Martynova is also a maker and craft expert at MUSEEA, an award-winning design and curation studio, based in Stockholm, creating large scale immersive environments and exhibition designs that are showcased worldwide.
Anastasya has an strong affinity with plants and the healing power of nature. She endeavours to use sustainable materials where possible and has recently partnered with Onetreeplanted, a charity that plants trees from the proceeds of her limited edition art scarves.
Martynova is a member of the Michelangelo Foundation/Homo Faber, Crafts Council Directory and Heritage Crafts Association.
Her studio is located at the Design District in London.
