Description

Ana Vchkova(1998) is a visual artist who has obtained a Bachelor’s degree in painting with scenography from the Faculty of Fine Arts, University Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje (UKIM). Her artistic focus is multimedia, working simultaneously in several mediums: painting, photography and graphic design. The combination of different techniques is the base of her artistic experiments whose ultimate goal is to convey the subject matter more authentically, creating a connection between the audience and the artwork.
Ana Vchkova has participated in several group exhibitions, among them, the Manchester Art Fair (2021), Skala (2022), Pioneri (2024), etc.

‘Ambrosia II’ is part of Ana’s solo exhibition ‘Diversus’.

The creative process was extensive and heartfelt, involving day-long photoshoots and intimate conversations about navigating a predominantly male society, says Ana. These young women bravely shared personal stories, shedding light on societal pressures. The conversations combined with the artistic expression go beyond the pictorial exploration of the story in combination with the intermedial textual forms, story, narrative etc.
To ensure comfort and empowerment, each girl brought clothing that made them feel confident and clothing that made them feel uncomfortable—often linked to unwarranted sexualization. These garments became powerful symbols in the visual narrative. Each photo is unique, crafted with care on high-quality 300gr. textured paper. The prints are enhanced with oil paint and aquarelle, accentuating specific elements. This technique not only adds aesthetic charm but also echoes the voyeuristic, hand-colored photographs of the early 20th century, forging a meaningful connection to the past.
Diversus is more than an art project; it’s a vibrant expression of female strength, resilience, and defiance against societal norms.
