ABOUT ANATOLY AKUE

Anatoly Akue's artistic path has started with graffiti and street art. Thus, specific forms and motifs typical for these movements can be found in his creativity. For the last five years, he has been concentrated on a studio work searching for ways of including graffiti elements in joyful abstract paintings. Anatoly's artworks are multi-layered, vivid and fluent, some of them may also be associated with cartoons. Besides, he gets inspiration from Buddhist philosophy and images. Anatoly explores the development and transformation of human inner traits, he tries depicting this metamorphosis in his artworks.

"In my images, I combine transcendental practices - such as meditation, for instance, - and regular everyday life experience, to reveal and show strong interconnections between them" - says the artist.
