Anna Myagkikh is an artist/photographer originally from Moscow, Russia and currently living in London, United Kingdom.
I was once told that one has to stay a child as long as one can otherwise life becomes a burdensome chore. Kids do things intuitively and with passion. I want to preserve these childlike qualities in my work. I like to play with lines, material and texture. Colors are important too, the brighter – the better. I don’t like to dwell for too long at the expense of spontaneity and sheer joy of the creative process itself. Contemporary world dictates its rules, and I choose to act fast to adapting to its pace and current. With the increasing prevalence of internet and social media everything is edited and filtered, but the way I go about my art is honest and undiluted. Here, the enjoyment of the process comes through my implementation of crafts, a very physical and tactile process, landing to the overall touch of kitsch and sensual exuberance to my work.
