Anna Smetanenko

Nihilonechoanists is a multidisciplinary artist, from Ukraine, Zhytomyr, currently studying Fine Arts in Groningen, The Netherlands. Everything started at the age of 7. I read Ukrainian stories about endless sunflower fields, which inspired me to write own fairy tales. i have been writing prose and poetry since. Prose regarding Maidan events has been published in “Rising for Freedom and Democracy in Ukraine” book by Brine Books Publishing. Fresh poems deal with artist's newly discovered interest in neurosciences.
Nihilonechoanists works in all mediums: “I like the float between all of them, where every skill is like having enough fingers”. Photography branches out into vision oriented works (staged/ documentary) and playing with the medium itself (photomashes). Layers of editing and attention to detail, bouncing of photography, lead to Illustrations. Concise and back-ground free, they lure the viewer with their intense details. Photographic works have been published in several international online magazines. Study of the neurosciences and singing practice brought to the development of works that focus on the liquidity of thinking and mind's attention.

I currently live and work in Kyiv, Ukraine.
