Anna Hymas’ style is lyrical and beautiful
Years ago I lived in Bloomsbury in London and shared a mad 3 storey house with all kinds of inspiring folk. There was a guy who made light installations for raves, another bloke made a massive 6 storey high treehouse just to film it being burnt to the ground and then there was Anna Hymas who was studying at St Martin’s College. Her work has become increasingly lyrical and in some ways reminds me a little of Jean-Michel Baquiat. It’s also great to see she can shift her focus for commercial projects too, which in today’s art world is a great skill to have. I haven’t seen Anna for years, but it’s great to see her doing what she loves and doing it so well.
