Anna Andrzhievskaia b. 1989

I wish I could draw as effortlessly as drops run down the fogged glass, I want the lines to be defined and confident like the broken glass, like the first ice on a pond frosting plastic bottles and fallen ashberries.

In her artistic practice, Anna Andrzhievskaia refers to traditional media such as paintings and graphics, as well as to the aesthetics of simple materials such as colored gel pens, pencils, gold markers and copper watercolor. In her paintings Anna creates worlds filled with surreal images resembling colorful dreams or hallucinogenic states. Such visual decisions bring the artist’s works closer to surrealism and its poetry. Her main sources of inspiration are the beauty of natural forms and graphics of video games.

 

The artist's works were presented at the III Moscow International Biennale of Young Art and MANIFESTA 10. Anna is a member of the group "North-7". As a member of the group, she is the winner of the Present Continuous 2018 prize of the V-A-C Foundation (in collaboration with the M HKA Antwerp Museum). The winner of a special prize from the French Institute of the Sergei Kuryokhin Prize for Contemporary Art. 

 

Her works are in the collections of the Museum of Political History of Russia, Museum of Art of Saint Petersburg, Museum of Modern Art M HKA (Antwerpen), Museum of Modern Art PERMM, Street Art Museum (Saint Petersburg) and private collections.
