CHILDHOOD

childhood.jpg

ESY_ASTRAL_ART (Eseniya Lanskaya) was born on August 22, 1989, in Kuressaare, Estonia. Her parents used to move frequently from place to place due to father's career at the Soviet military services.


As a child, Eseniya's parents encouraged her to

think differently and search for answers in an

independent way.

For the first time she had a crush on art when she was 10 years old. Her grandma recognized the child's talents and, being motivated to give to her grandchild all the art education she could, created a special
"Art Box"
, which contained reproductions of local
and international artists, who worked during
various historical periods of time.


The pursuit of aestheticism included classical instrumental and opera compositions.

“Each morning and afternoon I would open the box, turn on the music, and start looking through numerous artwork reproductions, copying drawings of the great masters, like Leonardo, Raffaele, Michelangelo and Botticelli.”

In 1998 Eseniya started studying at one of Moscow's local art schools, successively completing the whole
5 years course afterwards.

When the girl reached 12 years old her family splitted into two parts, leaving her to confront with the world
in a partial self-identification mode:

“...at the same time being and not being an integral part of the family, and which of them!?”

Nevertheless, the challenges pushed her consciousness towards the crave of exploration, studies, spiritual and intellectual self fulfillment.

She always had a comparatively low interest in fictional literature, giving the main preference to psychological studies, biographies, philosophical and scientific theories...

In 2007 Eseniya graduated from school with perfect marks in the following subjects: drawing,

draftsmanship, literature, history and foreign languages.

UNIVERSITY YEARS

At that time Russia was still healing the Soviet Union dissolution wounds and the times were unstable.
Internet wasn't as developed as nowadays and the country's art market demonstrated stagnation.
Eseniya had to go and study foreign languages at Moscow State University of Linguistics.

"We have a saying, that from one exam session to the other students live happily and peacefully.
I never knew what this phrase was about..."


Majority of students were graduates of special linguistic schools, what increased the average level
of the students's knowledge.

"I had to show, that I can be at the same level with them, thus I started studying during late nights."
In the end this type of stressful life-style brought her to the edge, provoking anorexia nervosa.

“Today I am one of the 10% of the worldwide population, who battled anorexia nervosa.”

In 2012 Eseniya arrives in New Zealand for the second degree and new work experience. She continues drawing, painting, reading about artists and gets inspired by: Salvador Dali, Frida Khalo, Alfons Mucha,

J.W. Waterhouse, Istvan Sandorfi and Chuck Close.

"Foreign language skills improvement through real practice opened to me the sea of opportunities
to discover new horizons of thinking and enrich the visual potential. It is a portal into the worldwide culture,

habitudes, traditions and various points of view. It is one of the greatest gifts a contemporary person may
wish for, it is the opportunity to become the citizen of the world and go beyond the geographical belongings."

PRESENT DAYS

In October 2017 Eseniya moved to Italy, where she lives with her partner.

Life experiences, worldwide travelling and the unquenchable interest in knowledge took an integral part
in the artist's style development.

"I am driving viewer’s interest to analyze the interconnected symbols and acquire awareness about the established standards, social norms, decision patterns. Awareness gives birth to dilemmas, the answer to which knows each liberated mind.”
