Artist Name

Anna Onikiienko

Born: 1990

Hometown: Kropyvnytskyi

Based in: Yerevan

Currently I am inspired by East Asia culture and folk art. Often I create my works intuitively without preliminary sketching. Sometimes I use multi-layer paintings when one picture overlaps another one, and sometimes elements of collage are present. I use mixed technique in my works layering simultaneously different materials: acrylic, oil, oil pastel, watercolor, ink.

I create my paintings in series devoted to specific themes. Often my paintings are not bereft of irony and humor, painting personages can get into funny situations
