Anna Skorut was born in Szczecin, Poland in 1977. She studied art, graphic and interior design at the University of Applied Arts in Szczecin, Poland and graduated in 2002 as a Master of Art and Interior Design.
Anna had shown an interest in art at an early age and during her studies at university she was already receiving some commissions. Immediately after graduating from her studies, Anna started earning a living from commissions that she received both from private firms and individuals residing both in Poland and in Germany.
During the time spent at university Anna learnt about various techniques which she combined creatively and which, through the years, helped her evolve her authentic style. The main media Anna uses is acrylic and her most evident style is abstract with a shadow of realism. Other characteristics in Anna’s technique and style are the evident spontaneity in her choice of and play with colours and simple forms. She likes art which leads people to experience different levels of interpretation and as well to create a connection between some of her paintings and that is why some themes she portrays are not depicted on one singular canvas.
Her specialty is commission paintings by individual orders. In the past she
made a lot of commission work for private companies, architecture offices,
real estate agents, lawyers' chambers and banks, both in Poland and abroad. Some of her commissioned work can be seen in the following buildings:
•Real estate agent “Rent” in offices in Szczecin, Rewal, Dziwnów Poland
•Lawyers' chambers “Lubiniecki & So³tyszewski” in Szczecin-Poland
• “ Do Brazil” Restaurant Portomaso-Malta
Some of Anna’s commissioned paintings, murals and other creative work have been
exhibited at various Galleries, Retail Outlets and Restaurants including:
• Cleland & Souchet, Portomaso, Malta (2004),
• Camilleri Paris Mode, Sliema, Rabat, Malta (2005),
• Corinthia Hotel, Balzan, Malta (2005),
• Chez Philip, Gzira Malta (2006),
• Wigi's, Sliema Malta (2006),
• Rotary Exhibition, Cittadella Centre for Culture&Arts, Victoria, Gozo , Malta (2010),
• “Opus 64” Galerie, Sliema, Malta (2010),
Anna’s recent stay in Costa Rica has had a great influence on the choice of themes she has used for most of her recent works. This has helped her experiment with new forms and colours which are evident in the paintings which she is exhibiting at present. In some of Anna’s latest works one can immediately identify a variety of key locations from around Costa Rica.
