Tribambuka (aka Anastasia Beltyukova) is a London based multidisciplinary artist, award-winning illustrator and animation director working predominantly in painting and printmaking. Her practice is concerned with the themes of shifting identity, home and belonging. As a British artist with Russian roots, she takes a critical approach to the complexities of her heritage through a contemporary lens of feminist thought and mythological thinking. Her striking, figurative visual language is an amalgamation of the artistic elements found in Russian Avant-garde, French Analytical Cubism and Fauvism, as well influenced by the revolutionary spirit of swinging sixties.
The artist was formally trained in the traditions of the Russian Analytical school of paintingat the St. Petersburg State Academy of Art and Design, which opposes the canon of academic education and takes its roots from artists like Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, Pavel Filonovand Natalia Goncharova.
