Anetta Lukjanova is a classically trained painter based in Helsinki and Barcelona. She works in the mediums of drawing, painting and large scale murals. Her technical skills in realist figurative painting are evident in all of her work. She finds variation in flat illustrative shapedesigns which make her work stand out from a purely classical approach. Her style is mostly representational magical realism.
Lukjanova had the idea of painting an impossible space that merges a living room and the outdoors and forms an “urban livingroom”. The piece differes from Anetta’s original draft, and for example the lanterns were not “lit” until the painting was almost finished.
