Anya Stasenko


Associate Producer, Film Subject, Porcelain War

Anya Stasenko is a ceramics artist and experienced nature photographer who has been deeply engaged in the fine arts since her early childhood in Kharkiv, Ukraine. As such, Stasenko’s paintings have become her lifelong language. While studying at the Kharkiv School of Arts and Academy of Design and Arts, she developed a unique style of painting on ceramic miniatures. This is also where she began to collaborate with Slava Leontyev, now her husband. Together, they create the widely recognized tiny porcelain figurines featured in this film. As an artist living in a war since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Anya has continued to express the beauty of Ukraine through her art.
