ana popescu's sunny shades


You may have spotted artist Ana Popescu’s work splashed across various bits and bobs including puzzles, notebooks, throws and art cards. It’s easy to see why the Vienna-based artist's sunny scenes of villas and pools are in such high demand: each one feels like a lovely postcard from where you’d rather be. While Ana is well known for her architecture-focused works, you might have missed out on her 2018 series Shades – a number of acrylic paintings and drawings that play with shadow and texture. Ana zooms in on her surroundings – the dappled shadows a tree casts against a wall or the texture of the footpath for example – and recreates them in big, bold colours.
