Masha Gusova is a Russian-born contemporary painter whose work is inspired by her background in art history. By manipulating various historical images, she creates new narratives that examine the human condition and challenges we face, both collectively and individually. She emigrated to the UK during her early childhood and is currently based in Bristol.
