Wow guys! Meet incredible Anna Kruhelska - we talked about art, inspiration, tips for those who are just starting their creative journey, and many more
AR: Please, tell us a bit more about yourself. What brought you into art?
A: I am a qualified architect and for the last 15 years, I’ve been working professionally. I love my job, but at some point, I realized that I needed a side project, which would be more artistic and would give me the opportunity to creatively express myself and explore ideas I find interesting.
That’s how my art journey began and it gives me a lot of satisfaction and enjoyment.
AR: What inspires you the most?
A: My inspiration comes from all sorts of places: architecture and minimalism are probably the strongest ones but I’m also inspired by geometry, origami, movement. Recently I'm very much inspired by colors too.
AR: Do you have any specific rituals while working(creating)?
A: I usually start with a cup of coffee - it helps me focus and gives me a few minutes to think about what I need to do today. I also like to listen to good music while creating art.
AR: What would you recommend to someone who's new to art (whether an artist or just an admirer); what to begin with?
A: Visit galleries & art fairs and see various exhibitions. It helps to understand what kind of art you like.
AR: Your top 3 favorite adjectives related to art?
Unique, thought-provoking, witty.
AR: The best angle to look at art is from..?
A: I believe that art can be viewed from many perspectives. Artists create but the audience can find their own meanings.
AR: The Perfect phrase to start any conversation about art is:..?
A: Working on anything exciting lately?
AR: Must-read books to talk about art (or do we even need them)?
A: Surely books help understand art I would definitely recommend reading them. If I would recommend one book it would be ' The Gift: How the Creative Spirit Transforms the World' by Lewis Hyde. The main idea of the book is the importance of creativity in our money-driven society.
AR: If you could change one thing in the art world - what would it be?
A: I would help all the talented people out there with brilliant ideas who can't break through.
AR: Please, share your favorite quote (not necessarily related to art)
A: "Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working"
