Biography

Anna was born in Moscow in 1984. She came of age in the post-Soviet Russia where apart from doing academic drawing and painting she studied linguistics, philosophy, and psychology. 

Aged 21 she moved to London, where she graduated from Central St Martins.  Viewing all her work as "in-progress" Anna did not actively pursue gallery representation. Rather, she viewed her practice as constantly evolving and wanted to let new ideas germinate freely. For over 6 years Anna has been successfully collaborating with luxury design brands and creatives designing custom digital prints and surface patterns based on her original artwork. Her work has been photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue UK and appeared in numerous fashion publications and art press.

Often without obvious foothold in reality Anna’s body of work attempts to go beyond the plain description of a natural world. This free-floating and impressionistic version of reality that is proposed by the artist often takes shape in the eye of a viewer as a feeling, an experience, a hazy recollection drawn from childhood, titillating the imagination and speaking to the subconscious. Coming from a great tradition of Russian abstract artists such as Kandinsky, Malevich, Chagal, her work draws upon newer ideas taking as its inspiration digitisation, quantum mechanics, contemporary science, the infinite and the unconscious.
