Anastasia Pather is a practising fine artist who received her BFA from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2010. She is a finger painter, quiet performer and female concerned with surface and the duality of objects. Her work explores the architecture of memory and the politics of colour. Although she understands her process as an involuntary reaction to a surface she cannot shut out her thoughts about identity, exoticism, eroticism and power. Her use of gold leaf and glue allows her to paint time and that idea quite intrigues her.
“I am a semi abstract, finger painter, a frequently distracted thinker and an uninterrupted female. My process allows paint to organically form shapes through its own viscosity and my body movements.” – Anastasia Pather

Inverted Heads (les têtes Interverties) speaks of a woman with two inseparable lovers and is inspired by an ancient Hindu tale. You can find more of her enchanting work here.

Resourcefulness at its best, here are a few images of people who did not let the happenings in life get them down. These people turned a bad situation into an incredibly beautiful one by using a cheaper yet creative method to fix their damaged items. Next time something you own is damaged, use it as an opportunity rather than a set back!
As Berne Brown said ‘There is no innovation and creativity without failure”

Last year Sagmeister & Walsh created 3d environments inspired by 2d pop art paintings with the help of body painter Anastasia Durasova and set builds by Sing-Sing. This year, along with the same team, they brought psychedelic and constructivist worlds to life, complete with trippy optical illusions and a pink painted horse. Images will be on billboards, in magazines, newspapers, and in stores across the middle east at Aizone stores.
