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!
As you may have deduced, I am spending this spring in Arkansas. It's been super interesting to live in USA, as it has allowed me to learn more about this culture as well as reflect back on my own culture, my morals, values, and goals.

I think what I have missed most says a lot about both the experience as well as about my cultural background. Of course, I miss my loved ones THE most, but here the things besides my dearest peeps that I miss a lot:

- Quiet time with people. Silence, yet togetherness.
- Physical, non-sexual closeness with people. Hugs, holding a friend's hand, sitting close together.
- Negative, rude, or even just neutral comments. Everything does not need to be all fantastic and full of smiles all the time. It really wears you down.
- Colourful cobblestones and crooked streets. Streets are way too unicoloured and ...manmade I want to say.
- A feel of different eras in architecture and street design...emergent design.
- Not needing clear categorization. This is something I have struggled with a lot my whole life: not having clear categories that I fit. Yet while some categories, such as country of origin seem to have less significance here, other categories are continuously and very aggressively assigned to me.
