Ksenia Nunis is an extremely visually driven person. The contemporary artist primarily investigates the balance between nature and technology in her work.
From childhood, she pursued an art career in any form. It felt as it was encoded in her. In particular she inherited it from her mom, a very wise nature-driven architect. Life in her hometown Tolyatti, Russia was surrounded by a beautiful beach with a pine forest and contrastingly man-made constructions that felt ‘soulless’.
By the time Nunis moved to Moscow, Russia she decided to study Graphic Design. During this time she mostly worked with images related to Russian constructivism and suprematism movements. Moreover, assignments required experimenting with shapes and colors, but in their primitive forms. And highly valued precision with everything; from basic realistic drawing skills to gym lessons attendance. Whereas her second studies in Fashion Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, the Netherlands felt more ‘right’. In fact, teachers’ open-minded approaches helped her to concretize her esthetics as an artist and designer.
Throughout her studies and further professional experience, Nunis learned diverse art and design techniques and observed a broad range of creative possibilities. Most importantly she discovered that each person expresses themselves in a unique, distinctive way.
