Sasha Pivovarova was born in Moscow, Russia. As a child, she always dreamt of becoming a movie star or an artist. She started taking art classes at age six, and then went on to study art history at the Russian State University for Humanities. The art program was well suited for Sasha as it drew her closer to her interest in Expressionism, Symbolism and Post Expressionism. Through her modelling, Sasha travels extensively and loves getting to visit local museums, exhibitions and studios of her artistic friends. She uses her free time to paint and is particularly interested in Symbolism referencing Gaston Bussiere, Odilon Redon and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. Sasha’s paintings have been displayed in galleries in Paris and have been published in French Vogue.
