ARTIST STATEMENT


Collage is my creative playground. I love using found images to create new stories and to experiment with digital and analogue techniques.

For me, the beauty of this medium is that there are no rules, only the limits of your imagination. Not having to stick to any one style, genre or narrative is exhilarating and liberating. With every piece that I make, I set myself a new challenge and it’s the perfect way for me to explore my creativity. This is why all my pieces are completely different. They range from commercial, illustrative portraits to political commentary, to explorations of the human condition.

ARTIST BIO


Sasha Shalmina is a multidisciplinary artist, based in Glasgow, Scotland. Born in Moscow, Russia, Sasha moved to the UK at the age of 12. During her childhood she fell in love with drawing portraits, as she found the human form to be endlessly inspiring and captivating. Sasha went on to study BSc Hons Architecture at Strathclyde University in Glasgow. Her architectural education gave her the foundation to push her creative skills much further, into the realm of graphic design, digital art, moving image and animation.

In 2021, her animated paintings - a collaboration with her father artist and architect Ivan Shalmin were exhibited at the Saatchi gallery in London, followed by further shows in Amsterdam and the Louvre, Paris in 2022.

Following her father’s unexpected passing, Sasha decided to give up her career in design to fully pursue her dream of becoming a fine artist. She continues to experiment with different media and constantly explores new ideas, styles, and techniques. Her body of work includes traditional drawings and paintings, digital abstract art, collage and 3D models.
