Anna Ataeva (born February 3, 1980) is a Moscow-born contemporary artist now living in Los Angeles. She is best known for her work in Houston, Texas through the Rice Media Center and local Houston galleries.
Anna Ataeva received a master's degree from the Moscow State Academic V.I. Surikov Art Institute, and then continued her education at the former studio of Ilya Kabakov. Ms. Ataeva arrived in Houston nine years ago and quickly established her studio practice. Her works are in collections in the United States and Europe. She was trained for classical painting styles.
Currently, Ms. Ataeva is developing her oil on canvas paintings along two separate lines. The first is a series of contemplative works dealing with the observation of light on water, water plants and koi fish. The other takes a more expressionist track, presenting the human form portrayed as emotionally charged, stretched and contorted figures in space. Her artwork is displayed in collections in the United States and in Europe. Ataeva is inspired by the expressionist works of artists Egon Schile and Nikolai Fechin.
Her most recognized medium is oil on canvas; her contemporary paintings are classified as figurative art. Ataeva has had her own studio in Houston, Texas for about 6 years now. Ataeva has participated in about one hundred exhibitions and art shows. Ataeva's work of paintings has been shown in art halls ranging from Moscow, Brussels, London, and in the United States.
