Anna Boghiguian is a painter and drawer who uses a personal approach. Over many years, during her travels, she developed diary-like series of colored drawings and collages that describe the state of our world through her eyes. She covers issues like the environment, conflict in societies, diseases, etc. She speaks through her work as a third person who is immersed in modern urban cities all over the world yet never fully connected to that society.
I can relate to her nomadic lifestyle. I have moved around myself only living in an area for 4 years at a time. Being able to travel and do artwork about it is very appealing to me. I am interested in traveling when I graduate and I want my work to be relevant to where I travel and what I see. She tells a story through her work and that is my own goal.
Boghiguians' work interest me because it is about present situations. I like that her figures represent feelings and are not so literal. I also like the organic way she fills the page. She does include geometric shapes to contrast the chaos which I am including in my work now.
I do not include text in my work, because I don't want to be as specific as she is about intent, however I have considered in the future including text. She uses intense colors and expressive drawings similar of the figure similar to my work. Her work is a visual recording of experiences and perceptions very much like my work. Although my work is more personal the intent is the same to record life experiences and feelings that coincide with those experiences.
