Anna Kostenko was born in 1975 in Kiev, Ukraine, and has lived and worked in Cracow, Poland since 1991. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, where she studied painting from 1993 to 1998. She has had three exhibitions of works of art in Jorgensen and created many beautiful paintings since its release in 1999. Her fascination with different cultures has led to extensive travels that inspire her work, which has been shown in many countries, including Poland, France, Germany, Ireland and Spain.

Now we are told that these are paintings; not photographs.  That’s what it says on each of the pictures. 
I can't find any brush strokes, but then I'm no expert.

True story -
Many years ago there was an item in the San Francisco Chronicle  about a policeman who stopped a driver for going the wrong way on a one way street.  The driver is reputed to have said, "But Officer, I was only going one way!"

* The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge.
* One thing I can give and still my word.


  1. Nice art! At the turn of the last century/late 1800s, landscapes were considered the highest form of art, and looking at those you can see why. That's part of why the Impressionists were so radical in their day.

  2. Ohhhh All of them are beautiful, but I would love to have the Dark Castle hanging on my wall. Unusual for me as I usually like more cheerful subjects, but the golden light seems so cozy, somehow.

  3. The last foto is stolen by Piucco (Teo Antunovic) ...You can see your work on Pticica.....
