|Anna Bhushan is a British Indian artist based in New York. Anna moved to Manhattan from London after graduating with an MFA from the Royal College of Art in 2004. Her BFA was from the University of Brighton. During her two year MFA, Anna received two bursaries from the Royal College of Art and the Worshipful Company of Painter Stainers and was presented first prize in both the Folio Society (2003) and Quentin Blake (2004) annual awards.
Since 2004 Anna’s work has been shown in London, for instance at the Chelsea Arts Club and Magma Gallery; in New York at the Queens Museum of Art, The Guild, The Studio gallery, The Rider Project, NYU and Exit Art.
Anna’s watercolor and gouache paintings integrate abstract form with delicate figurative detail. Anna's recent work refers to the interior of the physical body as starting point for exploring the non-physical aspects of self. These small paintings attempt to trace the intangible impact of personal experience on the body at a microscopic level, and within these microcosms are found forms which connect to the archetypal language of Indian mythology and ritual, a recurring theme in Anna's work.
