About Anna Boginskaia

 
 
  • Biography

    My name is Anya. I’m watercolor artist born among the shortest mountains in the world called Urals and now waking up to a view of Ararat in Yerevan, Armenia. 

    Realizing my difficulty in expressing my thoughts and feelings in words forced me to focus on the importance of connecting with my real self.

    At the university I got an engineering degree at the insistence of my family, but I always dreamed of painting and felt realizing myself in a different way. Therefore, when I first found myself with a brush in hand, I was already unstoppable.

    My specialty is watercolor because I love the combo of graphics and fluidity this medium enables me to capture at the same time. It’s like a reflection of my nature, strong character with a combination of love to be in the flow. I like to dive into work with rituals - make hot tea, put on a colorful bandanna, turn on quiet music for meditation, stretch well .. and start, letting the mood and emotions spill onto the paper. I love that when I work the space around me freezes, there is only paper, brush, and as they say, watercolor god. 

    Since moving to Armenia most of my paintings are inspired by Nature. In it I feel strength and freedom, I find peace, and I learn flexibility and softness. Nature accepts you in any mood, and like a tuning fork, turning into the right way, in harmony with yourself and nature.

    Venue: Zangak, Yerevan, Armenia

    Armenia has provided many amazing resources that would not be so easy to find in the harsh Urals. The sun, smiling people, crowded cafe verandas, the constant feeling of support from strangers - all this is like a kind of "Yerevan Effect" - embracing and freeing from the shackles of fear, releasing and causing a splash of the artist's feelings onto a white sheet of paper. The paintings are the most understandable and valuable way to show gratitude in response to all these gifts and a new stage in life.
