Anna Burel is a French artist living and working in London since 2009.
After studying a Foundation Course for visual Arts and graduating in Fashion Design in Paris Anna moved to London to study an MA in Fashion and Film at UAL where she graduated in 2010, with Distinction, with her final project The Visitation of the White Wolf.
Anna has since been dedicated to her studio practice at the Bow Trust in East London.
She works with a range of media, from photography to sculpture, as well as painting and collage. Her approach to the medium is one of constant experimentation.
In her work Anna explores the dualities in discourse that cast us as multiple characters emerging from a single anatomy, creating shifting states of tension and complicity within the self. She engages actively in a discourse about female representation and human relationships with the urban environment, from an emotional perspective.
Anna regularly exhibits her work in London and abroad as member of the art collective Magma with their ongoing projects such as Mnemonic City.
