Whether her paintings illuminate an otherwise plain brick wall, or are travelling down the torrential river that is a social media news feed, the art of Anya Brock is unmistakable and striking. From her use of bold, expressive black lines, to the kaleidoscopic colour palette through which she sees the world, Anya’s paintings present an ecstatic and infectious energy everywhere they appear. They bring life.
Zebras brightly coloured beyond their own monochrome stripes, birds whose plumage bleeds together... these things that she so often returns to – images of girls crying tears of house paint – are Anya’s fingerprint as an artist. And although her work is most often described in visual terms, the closest form of expression to what she is doing is jazz, because her work is neither about the subject nor the observer... it is about the process.
A native of the fashion industry, Anya started and ran high-end label Anan for eight years, but it was after working in London for Christopher Kane and Richard Nicoll that she discovered her love of painting. Leaving London behind her, Anya returned to Perth in 2011 to fully immerse herself. As the immersion deepened, Anya’s work became more and more visible in her hometown, decorating some of the city’s most popular spots with bright and cheerful murals, and finding their way onto the walls of Subiaco and Fremantle art galleries; Anya’s trademark sexy-face girls becoming sought-after icons of bold and sexy femininity.
Making her New York debut as a winner of the 2012 Stoli ORGNLtv competition, Anya’s work began attracting international attention for its striking beauty, playfully contradictory titles and jazz-like use of geometry. Echoing her life through her work, oozing charm and sexuality through wave after wave of colour, Anya’s style has been instantly recognised by her peers as definitive, and is continuing to make ripples on the international market.
Anya relocated to Sydney’s Bondi in early 2013 where she continues to breathe life onto walls and canvas among the bustle of one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. As they did in her hometown, Anya’s sexy-face girls are now gracing the covers of Sydney’s Urban Walkabout guides… a fitting omen, and a fair sign that she has truly arrived. An artist in residence.
