BROUHAHAART Interviews Anastasia Huseynova
Anastasiia Huseynova is a figurative painter from Ukraine. After the beginning of the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine, she moved to Germany and is now continuing to develop and create art in Europe.
Tell us a little about your background?
I was born in Kharkiv and studied Fashion Design at the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Fine Arts. During my study, I realized that I was more attracted to painting, so I began my journey as an artist-painter. Before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, I was more into fine arts. Still, after the beginning of the war and the forced removal from Kharkiv, I realized that I wanted to tell people stories with the help of my paintings. Thus, I can evoke their emotions, touch their hearts and be able to change the world for the better.
With the help of art, I express myself and my thoughts about the modern world, its
problems and shortcomings. My art is my reflection on what needs to be changed to make the lives of every person and the world as a whole more harmonious. This is my way of communicating with people.

What's your biggest barrier to being an artist? How do you address it?
The hardest thing for me was understanding my path in the art world and my style.
Barriers are only inside us, and we must learn how to overcome them.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given and professionally, what’s your goal?
Listen to yourself only. Paint only the way you like it and feel; this is a real art. My goal is to inspire people and make them think and act.
