Anna Yakimenko’s (AiNi) work can be described as one of unconventional beauty, clean subtlety, and playful wit and understated creativity. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Art and Design from her home country’s state University of South Kazakhstan. As a member of National Artists Association, she is a regular participant in many art exhibitions and design events in both USA and Kazakhstan. She is quickly gaining respect and acclaim for her custom work. With her distinguished stylistic signature she’s been commissioned on numerous occasions to bring to life conceptual art pieces underlining her true blend of client’s idea and AiNi’s artistic imagination.
Dmitry Andruz remarked that “[a]rt is my way of expressing the results of imagination mixed with observed reality on a blank canvas. I see my paintings as snapshots of the ideas I’ve cultivated from a compilation of different experiences. He is a prolific artist, painter, and graphic design who began his journey in the city of Minsk, Belarus. In the early 70’s his father, a well-known soccer coach and amateur painter, encouraged his interest in arts. His father noticed Dmitry’s exceptional talent and the uniqueness of his artistic vision when they would paint together. Dmitry’s endless curiosity in different mediums of visual arts and crafts led him to become one of the most sought after artists in the Chicago-land area, and some other areas of the United States, in faux finishing and home painting design. After more than 20 years, he continues to excel in this field. Dmitry’s art is quite impressive and he is a regular participant in Art Shows and exhibitions in Illinois and Florida.
