Ania Pieniazek – Tulips and Pears

£1,200.00

Although Ania found the time spent at the university a great influence, she prefers to call herself a self-taught painter. In her words: ‘ I don’t really believe in art degrees. What makes me an artist is a passion for art, an inner compulsion to be creative and many years of practice’. Her first oil paints were given to Ania by her father on her 13th birthday and she has been painting in oil for 30 years now.

Since she moved to London in 2005 her work has been exhibited in numerous individual and joint exhibitions in the UK.

Dimensions 80 × 80 cm

Description

Of Polish descent and now living in London, Ania Pieniazek creates bold, bright art full of everyday joy and pleasure. Influenced by Gustav Klimt, Paul Gauguin and Zbyslaw Marek Maciejewski amongst others, her work observes simple scenes of fruit, flowers, lazy morning breakfast tables, patterns, perspectives and a cat named George.

Ania has previously worked with several galleries in an around London, and has exhibited continuously since 2010, as both a solo artist and in group exhibitions.

Ania says “I always have been creative, as far as I remember. I could never stop drawing or doodling… [it] got me in trouble on many occasions. Creating art is a joy of my life. It is the most satisfying and fulfilling activity I can really imagine”.
