About Anna Belan
There are no upcoming events
Most people draw as children, but not all continue. I was lucky that my interest in the world around me became a profession, and the first experience was through understanding the theater world. Passion for theatrical performances, the imagery and beauty of the stage costume conquered me and helped me make a choice in this direction. In my images, I look for stories that will be reflected in contemporary art. That is why the theme of female images, children, the theme of growing up is so close to me.
Creating stories for my characters, I explore the subtle facets of the soul, their relationship with the world, nature and each other. The heroes of my paintings sometimes have a reference to the past, which they seem to be trying to try on for themselves. In them, I look for the inner light that comes from within the hero. This light becomes dominant in my work.
My main medium is oil on canvas, but sometimes I like to experiment with technique, combining collage and ornaments, combining a smooth canvas surface with relief and textured elements. In my paintings, I combine the textures of fabrics, ornaments for female images, and elements of a costume. My goal as an artist is to invent a new world for simple things, so that the works create a special emotional fullness, leaving the viewer alone with himself.
