Maria Liachovitskaya (b. 1995), also known as Masha, is an artist from Lithuania, of Russian origin. She took courses in Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named by Ilya Repin in Saint-Petersburg, and afterwards studied in Russian academy of arts in Florence, Italy.
Taking an academic approach to realizing each of her artistic visions, Masha’s main focus is to transmit the unique states of scenes, characters, objects and nature.
Masha is exceptionally sensitive to colors. For her color and light are the sacred essentials, and not only in painting. She believes everything, including a smell, a sound or even a silence, can be expressed by the color.
“We all are energy, a wave, a frequency, a vibration. Therefore, we all are connected. My goal is to remind about that” says Masha.
Masha is working in oil and watercolor techniques. She is now represented by BGN Arte gallery in Asunción, Paraguay and works from her studio in Patiño 30 km away from Asunción where she lives in pure unity with nature.
