Dasha Charusha (nee Daria Simonenko) is a Russian actress and singer currently residing in the USA. The most famous film in which she has appeared in and for which she wrote the score is sci-fi action movie HardCore Henry directed by her husband Ilya Naishuller.
Although in Russia she is better known as an actress, in fact, she excelled much more in composing. Thus, her scores for Russian movies “Silent Souls” and “Cold Front” got rave reviews in the press.
I made this portrait of her for a Russian cinema magazine before Charusha started her international carеer. I especially like her feminine and warm look at the portrait.
