Anna Kazmina
born 1987 in Moscow, Russia
Anna Kazmina was awarded a bachelor's degree from the Fine Art College of Moscow State University. Her training included advanced realistic drawing skills. She came to China as a graduate on a student exchange program. Her painting approach and corresponding concepts have undergone a long process of adjustment, deconstruction, disintegration and reshaping. During her Ph.D studies and research, as a bystander I have witnessed her paintings evolve from the popular "realistic style" similar to others, to today's unique characteristics work emerging with her own personal signature work. This evolved independently from specific request or guidance. In her new environs of Beijing, she has been actively "changing" her art practice. Day and night painting in her studio, she devoted herself to the language of experiment and finally changed the deep rooted way of painting. Her works repeatedly adjusted and recovered many times, they are huge in size, weight and composition. It is often surprising that this girl, who is somewhat introverted and blushes when she talks to strangers, within holds an immense heat. After graduating with her Ph.D. Anna chose to teach in the high school attached to the Central Academy of Fine Arts. As always her artistic exploration continued to advance, from figurative to abstract, from painting to sculpture…she has adapted to the Chinese environment, married a Chinese man, settled down in Beijing, and has a lovely son. As persistent as many young artists in Beijing, she worked hard to polish her profession, actively participated in various exhibitions, promoted herself in galleries and looked for opportunities. If it weren't for the occasional slightly strange word order sentences when speaking, anyone would almost forget that she is Russian.
