Anastasia Pace oil Canvas Lapsi 50x75sm


Some works of art immediately catch the eye. This is definitely the case with the paintings of artist Anastasia Pace, who has been living in Malta since 2005.

Anastasia, who is of Polish origins, describes her style as being a ‘Colour Reverie’ which highlights the use of vibrant colour and allegory which goes beyond mere fantasy into the mythological. Anastasia attended the Academy of Arts in Moldova for five years. In 2004, she joined the Moldova Union of Artists, and participated in more than a hundred art exhibitions in various countries, including Moldova, Russia, Germany, Latvia, the Islands of Malta and Italy. Her works are also currently exhibited in a number of international museums.

Inspired by tales of the fantastical, myths, legends, and fairytales, Anastasia fell in love with Malta’s rich culture and heritage, and decided to stay. She currently teaches at the Malta School of Arts in Valletta, while painting and enjoying the Maltese lifestyle with her husband and children. Anastasia also accepts commissions for specific works of art by private clients.

From when she was a child, she was always in love with painting. She does not have a specific methodology but just work free-hand in order for her mood and the atmosphere around her to come through. She just enjoys the moment. She generally paints when she feels a special spiritual connection to the subject she’s working on, which is why she never decides which colours or palette she’s going to use before-hand, the mixing of the colours is automatic depending on how she feels during that particular moment.

Right now, it seems like many artist are reflecting back all the negative gritty everyday issues they come across each day. Politics, international crisis, problems and such a dark outlook translate into what, for Anastasia, is the use of dull monochrome colours and a tarnished mirror of life. Through her paintings she wishes to show the opposite. This is why the focus is more on a magical and hopeful outlook which comes through with her representation of colours and light. Her target is to emphasize feelings of hope and positivity and to communicate these to her viewers.

Malta is truly an inspiration. Its roots are so deeply steeped in its ancient mysterious history, local myths and legends that truly feel as though each stone and pebble must be hiding its own story. Anastasia feels like it’s her calling as an artist to focus on such concepts of beauty in order to highlight their importance. She has found many like-minded individuals and artists locally, who perfectly capture the good mood and festive spirit prevalent throughout the Maltese lifestyle.
