Anna is a graduate of the Russian State University For Arts, where she got the distinction award of high-class artist in 1991. Subsequently, she studied art in Germany, Belgium, and Holland. With solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, Toronto, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Berlin and numerous works in private collections across the globe, she has become one of the most exciting and collectible artists on the contemporary scene.
Born at the height of the cold war, Anna has seen two very different worlds, that of the austere communist regime alongside the sophistication and femininity of her fashion-conscious mother. She excelled at art school, and enjoyed the freedom of learning and perfecting her technique in a variety of different media. Of particular interest to her were the portrait masters of the late 19th Century, John Singer Sargent, the Russian painter Valentin Serov, and earlier masters such as Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt. She traveled around Europe absorbing the influences of artists, and finally settled in Canada which she now feels to be her real home.
Looking at Anna Razumovskaya's art, you always get a feeling of artist soul tension behind the painting. "Romanticism" is the word to describe Anna's works...interlacing of quiet tones with the bright color impact at the end is the trademark of the artist... abstract elements is the significant aspect of every artwork and, in combination with the sensual dynamics, creates an unforgettable experience for the viewer.
Anna Razumovskaya graduated from Russian State Academy Of Arts (Rostov-on-Don) M.F.A. Fine Arts in 1991 and from 1992 to 1995 studied art in Germany, Belgium and Holland.
...If you ask an artist what he/she was thinking of while creating his work, he would hardly give a reasonable answer to that question. This process cannot be analyzed. It is like a miracle.
You are just drawing, and that is all. Simply not thinking of anything definite. The moment you start thinking... and that's it- unnecessary stroke, unnecessary detail. God knows how it all happens. Pleasure, passion, joy here are characteristics of this process.
