Vibrant Emotionally Charged Paintings of Expressive Women

Polish artist Anna Bocek's figurative paintings feature vibrant and energetic portraits of women. The painter's subjects are filled with emotion, communicated through facial expressions, body postures, and Bocek's brilliant color palette. Each portrait features a rich array of color, both in the background and on the subject, that adds to its evocative liveliness.

Strokes of color parade through every piece by the artist. The range of vibrant hues can be found in unexpected areas, adding an artistically dramatic element to her work. Bocek says, “My inspiration for painting is the theater, both as artist and viewer. I am drawn to the humanity of the characters living on stage, rather than the physical space of the theater itself. I am fascinated by the gestures, grimaces and emotions that convey the depth of our human spirit.”
