The winner takes it all

Anna Bukhareva
Anna was born and raised in south Russia. She proudly draws on her Cossack ancestors’ passion for life; celebrating each moment to its fullest. Anna achieved her Masters of Arts in Visual development degree at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her paintings are driven by sensuality and the exploration of the deep unconscious parts of ourselves, which are often suppressed by society. Going to the darkest and lightest parts of our souls, looking for the most daring desires. Drawing on Carl Jung’s theories, Anna seeks to unlock the power of knowing your dark side. She engages in the art of seeing which is only achieved through finding this balance of light and dark.
 
When you open yourself to your true desires and when you dare to conquer what you want with no fear, doubts or regrets it feels like you synchronize with world order and everything goes so smooth and easy. As the best reward for your courage to dare to be yourself.
