My thought about arts...

What does art mean to you?

To me it means light and harmony, but it is so much more than this too. If this is your first time visiting my website, welcome. I hope you like what you see (and read) here.

Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I don’t believe in using a single medium for my paintings – instead I use many different types of art materials. If you take a closer look at my work you’ll see a mix of black marker, acrylic paint and pencil lines to name just a few. I love the idea of mixing different mediums to create different effects. I particularly like creating a mix of textures in one piece as it provides another dimension for people to enjoy.

Starting with lines

Even though my finished artwork can be extremely detailed, it might surprise you to learn I never have a sketch to work from. I rarely have an idea or image to start from either – the beginning comes from one or two simple black lines. My imagination then takes over and my thought processes help develop the piece. It starts with a plain canvas and a brush, and those first thin lines develop a new creation. The door to the world of fantasy opens and the art begins to form.

My passion is in creating romantic abstract fantasies. What do you see in the work presented in my gallery? I love the idea of creating pictures that give people pause for thought long after they have looked away. Whether you are taken by a particular detail or image, or you think about what is expressed in a specific piece, your thoughts are yours and they extend from mine. What a way to create art that connects with people in so many different ways!

Style and drama

As you will see, my artwork has a particular style all of its own. Bright and soft colours both feature. Fine lines mark out elegant shapes and images, while the feeling of drama permeates everything I produce.

Whether it is the image of sleep, the wave of love or the connectedness of two souls on a journey together, I am inspired by fantasy and of the drama and passion in everyday life. Which of my paintings will inspire you most?

about

A little about me

Anna Oborotova

My name is Anna Oborotova.

I grew up in Estonia and studied art at Vitali Kuznecov Studio. This was a major turning point in my life and truly ignited my passion for drawing and painting. I owe a lot to Vitali Kuznecov for helping me develop my talents and see the world in a different way. As I grew up I also developed an interest in the work of Gustav Klimt and Mikhail Vrubel – an interest which remains strong today.

I studied fashion design at St Petersburg University of Arts and Design for a year. I then finished my degree at the Estonian Academy of Art in Tallinn.

I then left the country for the UK, where I live and work now.
