Born 1986 in Gdansk, Poland Anna Wypych began painting as a child. She graduated from Academy of Fine Art in Gdansk, Poland. During her studies she received eight national awards from the Ministry of Culture, the Marshal of the Pomeranian and the Mayor of Gdansk. Wypych won a Grand Prix in the national contest “Artistic journey Hestia” in 2010 and as a result she spent a month in New York City. She presented her works at various museums and galleries in Poland but also abroad, including the V International Student Art Triennial, Marmara University and the Faculty of Fine Arts, Istanbul, Turkey.
Anna explains her work by saying, “I take Inspiration from what I see around me, but my personal thoughts are only the starting point and kind of inspiration for the research on the man and his condition. You can not say that my paintings are realistic, but I use a realistic painting technique. I create my own space in which I put symbolic elements, creating a kind of puzzle, but to read it you don’t need scientific methods only the emotion and sensitivity of the recipient.”
