Anna Zuber was born in Wroclaw, Poland in 1983. She currently lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. She graduated in painting having specialized in mural painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland. She also studied at the Ecole Nationale d’art in Bourges, France and in the silkscreen department at the Academie Royale des Beaux Arts in Brussels, Belgium. Her work is strongly influenced by the use of gold. When working with gold she examines its physical and symbolic qualities, including its colour, luminosity and the iconographic complexity. She won first prize Grey House Fondation, Krakow, Poland and has been exhibit in France, Belgium and Poland. ARTIST STATEMENT : Gold is the symbol of power, wealth and divinity. Present in art and history throughout the ages, it carries an important and significant heritage leaving at the same time a wide margin for interpretation.

Gilding objects with gold leaf, an extremely meticulous technique, I aim to extract the maximum visual and symbolic power of this material. The Repetition of movements, test of an artist’s patience, and the impact of using such material add to the creative process. My work raises questions concerning the value of objects and the role of an artist in contemporary society, where appearances and money have become all important. The Graffiti de Luxe Project is inspired by urban expression. Tags, scratches, graffiti - often considered to be a simple defacing of a public place, becomes the main motive for my work. Wherever I travel or pass by, I take pictures of old walls, lifts or bar tables marked by incidental inscriptions. Their esthetical and social value is the main inspiration for my paintings. I print them on a golden background using silkscreen technique. Gold, traditionally associated with wealth, gives them a new status. Can they, taken out of their ordinary context, gain new quality in today’s materialistic society?... (Read more)
