About

 
 

Anastasija Mass is a Latvian visual artist currently working and living in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Coming from an artistic family, she has a diverse background in fine and applied arts, interior, and graphic design. In her personal projects, she works with illustration, photography and graphics, as well as applied arts.

Her work is characterized by experimentation with visual aspects of objects and images, practicing with traditional materials and classic graphic techniques with the use of digital manipulation. Both, objects and images that Anastasija creates, carry a strong visual character. She likes to bend the sense of reality, create an illusion, make viewer question what they are looking at.
