ABOUT

My name is Anastasija Mass. I am a Latvian visual artist, photographer, and designer based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. With a strong background in fine arts, I went on to study Social Design at Design Academy Eindhoven. There, my interest in human perception developed and images started to play a major role in my practise and became raw materials of my craft. Sight connects our eyes with the surrounding, yet an image can profoundly trigger our lived experiences.


In 2015 I have funded Studio Mass - a multidisciplinary creative studio for off/on-line outputs. Swinging in between art and design, most of the work I produce deals with photography and graphic works.
