anskamous's Profile Picture
Artist | Traditional Art
I currently work in the area of traditional art, with paints, ink, and pencil being my most strong media. I am very interested in political art and conceptual art, which is what I am mostly involved with in my free time. I am working on my doctoral dissertation in the field on consumer culture research, in which I use a lot of aesthetics and performance related literature and theory. My academic work has highly influenced and become intertwined with my artistic endeavours.

In addition to traditional media, I have a background in photography and digital art. I have studied photography, and I worked with digital art and digital editing of my traditional work, mostly for advertising (both online and print) and print media. I have done illustrations for magazines and other publications, as well as logos for various organizations. I'm very open to commissions and other projects. Feel free to contact me!
The days grow shorter, but I've learned that I rather enjoy the darkness of winter. It seems to be much more inspiring than sunny summer. 

Currently working on:
- Two paintings, both conceptual and both extending previous work. One is on identity, and one is on Utopia
- A mixed media sculpture, also on the topic of identity
- Illustrations! Yes, haven't had those in a while. Doing some illustrations for a friend's RPG project, which I am also a part of.

Have also been doing random portraits as well as doodles of magical creatures.

A guiding quote for life and for work at the moment:

"I raise my flags, don my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We'll paint it red to fit right in"

From "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons
