Anna Afonina is a young artist of new generation. She works with paintings, using mixed technique: in her works oil and aerosol paints and markers combine in harmony. At the moment the painting is the main focus of Anna’s work. Nevertheless, she is ready for experiments and she is thinking about the using of inscriptions and sound in her art. There is a lot ofautobiographical as Anna recognizes. Her art primarily based on private memories, feelings and experiences which are more negative. When others revel in suffering and start to disassociate, Anna fells special an artistic renaissance. For her happiness isn’t a source of inspiration but a pause, a deceleration. Despite that Afonina has just started her way in the contemporary art world, she has already made a statement on Russian and foreign art scenes. Anna has participated in many exhibitions including international projects such as “Christ’s Body” (Tapsony, Hungary) and personal exhibitions in Saint-Petersburg and Moscow.
Afonina was born in 1989 in Tolyatti, graduated from Tolyatti School of Arts. Anna has come to the art world from the field of graphic design, she started to seriously interest in painting only at the age of 20. She successfully graduated from Royal Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg with easel graphic specialty in 2017. Afonina has flawlessly learned this “craft” and the figurativeness of Anna’s works is one of the most obvious influence of the traditional academic education. Anna has decided to continued her art education and has come to Rodchenko Art School for a creation’s freedom and breaking patterns.
