Anna Afzelius-Alm’s paintings are expressionist, highly textural works that are stimulating and uplifting. Her technique involves a heavy use of the palette knife to maintain the focus on color and texture. The resulting imagery of Anna’s creative process is vibrant and playful splash of energy.
Anna was born in Minneapolis, USA in 1975, grew up in Germany and has lived in Switzerland, England, and China. Now, she works and lives in Sigtuna, Sweden. She is a self-taught artist who enjoyed the mentoring experience from Exile Professor Shahab Mousavizadeh from Teheran University of Arts during her young, formative years in Bonn, Germany.
Recently, Anna has been featured in the Emboss Magazine, January 2017 issue showcasing her work. She also had a solo exhibition in Stockholm in April 2017. Her major influences are Colin Pennock, Andreas Eriksson, and Astrid Sylwan, Paul Gauguin, Lars Lerin, Anders Zorn, and Carl Larsson.
