Olieverf op papier / 2023
Hi, great you're here!
Anja Martina studied at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht en Academie Minerva Groningen. Although her tutors stimulated her to study painting, she graduated in Graphic Design. During her work as a graphic designer, she gradually got more commissions that needed illustrating. That's how she rediscovered her love for handmade designs and drawing. In 2018 she slowly picked up painting again. Gradually Anja is exchanging her digital skills into manual skills, which she believes are more valuable in a society that's dominated by computers and digital programmes.
In a world that's turning into fake, we have to preserve the manual arts and crafts.
