Your name, where were you born?
- My author's pseudonym is Assa Lucky and now it is my main name. (My full name is Taisiya Lakovskaya but all friends, relatives, and colleagues call me Asya.) I was born in Russia in the city of Leningrad, now it is St. Petersburg
Write a little about your character.
- I am curious, purposeful, I like to work alone, and spend my leisure time with loved relatives ,friends and pets.
When did art/design/photography become part of your life?
- As far back as I can remember, I have always painted. Therefore, painting became a part of my life as I became aware of myself.
How long have you been making art?
- My mother sent me to the artist's studio for painting and drawing when I was 4. Since then I have been doing fine arts.
What shows that the art scene has evolved over the last few years?
- It seems that the changes in the art scene exist because of the Internet, borders are blurred; people can communicate and exchange thoughts, feelings, regardless of location. Culture is becoming global, and the art scene is becoming global.
Can you tell us more about the project you are currently working on?
- My favourite theme in creativity: the relationship of people and the relationship of people with their pets. And now I am making four projects in parallel. The first one is called “Salvation in Art” - it is 7 canvases about the main and more common arts. In my opinion, art heals, and through art and creativity, all dreams can come true. The second project is called "Winnie the Pooh and everyone" - these are 4 large canvases - I paint them in honor of my friend, whose image looks like a good-natured honest strong bear. The third project is called "Mia is my Chihuahua dog" - a project in which paintings are constantly born under the inspiration of my beautiful dog. The fourth project is called "Arnold Schwarzenegger and his pony and donkey" - this project is about my impressions of the news about the modern life of Arnold Schwarzenegger with his pets, a donkey and ponies, who all live in the same house. I think this is funny and cute.
Where do you do your work?
- I work most of the time in my workshop. I also have a husband, a dog and a cat, so there are plenty of other things to do besides painting.
