About Anna Inkova

Anna Inkova is a contemporary Belarusian artist. She works in the genre of park, monumental, and easel sculpture mainly in bronze and granite. Anna is a successor to a dynasty of artists. Her father is the famous Belarusian sculptor Mikhail Inkov. In the indoor sculpture category, Anna Inkova prefers the animalistic genre and captures the nature of the subject animal with amazing accuracy which stems from years of lengthy observations. Influenced by the art of Ancient Egypt, the sculptor achieves not only rich expressiveness of lines but also clarity and authenticity of movements. In her search for a figurative language to convey animal psychology, Anna Inkova started creating portraits of cats and dogs. Experimenting with composition dynamics, the artist creates both truly realistic and more allegorical, generalized images. Anna Inkova places special emphasis on the decorative features of bronze: patina becomes an additional instrument of artistic expression and a distinctive feature of her technique, which, along with the deliberate roughness and shading of the surface, makes up for the natural coldness of the material. The search for new figurative solutions and bold experimentation with technology and color in formal compositions within the framework of modern eclectic culture have make Anna Inkova one of the most promising contemporary sculptors in Belarus.
