Meet Artist Anna Razumovskaya Friday, July 30th
Time & Location
About the Event
Anna is best known for her classic, romantic figures that carry a sense of elegance and grace. Anna’s work is both classical and modern, her romantic figurative works carry with them both tradition and originality. Her work captures the elegance and grace of the female form with both an air of simplicity and sophistication. While Anna’s enchanting figures have an aura reminiscent of the Renaissance, and you can place them alongside old masters like Reubens and Rembrandt and draw similarities, the dynamic technique with which she paints, and the expressive freedom and sensuality of her work, creates something refreshingly modern, unique and beautiful.
Anna is a graduate of the Russian State Academy Of Fine Arts (Rostov-on-Don) M.F.A., where she got the distinction award of high-class artists in 1991. Subsequently, she studied art in Germany, Belgium, and Holland. With solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, Toronto, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Berlin and numerous works in private collections across the globe, she has become one of the most exciting and collectible artists on the contemporary scene.
Born at the height of the cold war, Anna has seen two very different worlds, that of the austere communist regime alongside the sophistication and femininity of her fashion-conscious mother. She excelled at art school, and enjoyed the freedom of learning and perfecting her technique in a variety of different media. She traveled around Europe absorbing the influences of artists, and finally settled in Canada which she now feels to be her real home.
