New Geometric Artworks


Collection of artworks based on the Shape of God Series

The Shape of God series seeks to reflect the human experience and the impossibility of achieving perfection. This work is inspired by Islamic art and the geometric patterns found in nature. I sees these series of artworks akin to positive charges in a space, bringing in light and harmony.

The Arctic - While the Ice is Melting

Nordiska Museet, Stockholm, Sweden
2019




Under the bright light of the North Star, where meridians meet and time zones come to an end – this is where the Arctic begins. Home to four million people who have for thousands of years lived with the ice.

The Nordiska Museet's Great Hall has been given over to the life and changing conditions of the Arctic region. In The Arctic – While the Ice Is Melting, visitors encounter the history and future of the ice and the people that live in one of the regions of the world where climate change is most noticeable.

MUSEEA designed this grand exhibition occupying over 2,000 square meters. The exhibition is the result of close collaboration between the studio, Nordiska Museet and 40 researchers and experts from around the polar area.

For this project, I contributed large-scale hand-made artworks including a straw installation, oversized, embroydered tapestries and a series of glass sculptures.

Gilded Glass Kitchen Splashbacks

Various UK locations

The design of each bespoke splashback is unique, using toughened, clear glass. The glass is painted and gilded by hand - setting it apart from commercial tarnishing/finishing techniques.

The design and colour options are unlimited as well as the option of choosing various metals - from 22ct gold leaf, marbled silver leaf, copper leaf and beyond.

Whether to add a statement to a new kitchen or as a sustainable choice to refresh and existing layout please enquire: mail@anastasya-martynova.com

Memory Chain for The New Craftsman


Hand-carved large wooden chain, entirely crafted from one single, continuous piece of pine.


In this piece, I was interested in sympathetically pushing a natural material into new, unexpected configurations retaining the tactile feel of the wood. The open chain, a symbol of freedom, as well as representing the removal of a heavy weight upon one’s heart provided my initial inspiration, while at the same time conjuring childhood memories of play and feeling carefree through its scale and weight. It as if the object has a life of it’s own, depending on it’s arrangement.
