Artist Name

Anna Ponomarenko

Born: 1988

Hometown: Kyiv

Based in: Vreden, Germany

In my works, I embody the strength of spirit, femininity, and an unending pursuit of self-expression. The female figure portrayed in my pieces serves not only as my alter ego but also narrates the stories of numerous women and their destinies.

It's my attempt to recreate moments of human essence, reflecting them through mixed techniques that add dynamics, richness, and complexity to the images. Each artwork, represents my endeavor to convey the world of internal emotions and moods through artistic creation.
