Resident Studio: No Regrets London
Bio: Anya is a Russian-born artist with Mongolian and Tatar heritage. These diverse cultures and her post-Soviet upbringing had the most impact on the stories depicted in her art. The main focus of her work is her personal experience and the complex emotions of being low-key alienated from society. “Semitone” is the word that she’d use to describe her art.
She has Academic Art and Costume Design degrees. Feeling too young to start something of her own, she started working for Vogue Russia and fell deeply in love with Haute Couture abundance of shine and textures.
Couple of years later, Anya realized how much she wanted to get back to crafts, take everything that she loved so much and put it into tattooing - that is how her personal style combining single needle black and grey pencil drawings with colorful patterns and realistic gemstones was born. She loves each and every texture there is. Imagine any realistic depiction of metal, glass, fur or any kind of texture that comes to mind and she can bring that to life for you.
