Check out our interview with talented Ukranian born, New York City living surrealist artist Anna Dianova.

In 2008-2011 Anna Dianova studied at the T. Shevchenko State Artistic school and graduated from the Faculty of Fine art. While she were studying at the school, she had an opportunity to perform as a model and a dj at numorous events, which helped her to become recognizable and gain certain popularity. Following that, in 2011, she enrolled in the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, the faculty of fine art, where she had an opportunity to learn from the best masters of the craft. The education at the Academy helped her to explore and feel the painting of nudity more deeply, to learn history of fine arts of different periods and study such disciplines as plastic anatomy, psychology and philosophy.

Since then Anna has participated in a number of socially significant events, which raised the topic of women’s rights, including an exhibition at Gemluc Art Expo in Monaco in October 2017 and an exhibition in the Ukrainian Parliament called ‘Harmony of Equals’ where she presented her triptych ‘White Ribbon’.

Furthermore, she has donated her painting ‘The White Knight’ to Andrea Bocelli Foundation. The funds from the auction at which the work is to be sold, will be directed to Andrea Bocelli School in Rome to help children who suffered from natural disasters.
