Blackpool-based artist Anna Bloomfield (Ravliuc) Anna's works are like a grand operatic spectacle: classical scenography, modern music and a cascade of lights and colours. Her characters emerge into an unrestricted space. Each spectator is both actor and director in a large country of shapes and colours.
‘Anna’s work speaks of other worlds with hidden powers and limitless possibilities. The imagery is highly imaginative and saturated with a fiery passion and artistic invention.’ (Agora Gallery New York, 2009)
‘Delicate and strong, real and mythological, pastel and bold, Anna’s paintings do not fail to transport the viewer into a world of their own, familiar at times, otherworldly at others.’ (The Jordan Times, 2009)
‘Anna Ravliuc – Contemporary Queen of colour.’ (Zari Gallery, London, 2017)

Anna has been exhibited in over 100 exhibitions throughout Europe and USA. For Anna, each .
What am I? And what can I say, standing at the beginning of the road that is meant for me? I am constantly searching for my artistic identity. My goal, as a young artist, is to develop a variety of perception skills, while searching for my own viable direction. This way, photography inspires my curiosities and my camera reflects my deepest expressions and thoughts. While growing up, I was surrounded by artists, movie stars, writers, directors... Since then I learned how to observe through a camera lens. And now I am ready to share all that has been building up inside me.
