Selfportrait

Anita Kreituse


Since Anita was a child she often felt the coexistence of simultaneous worlds at the same observation point. Worlds which are so difficult to describe. Worlds which do not compete for dominance but rather complement one another.

So she started to paint instead of talking about what she feels, what her dreams are made of.

In 1972, Anita graduated from J.Rozentals Art School in Riga and was admitted to Latvian Academy of Arts the same year. After her diploma she worked as a magazine art director, book illustrator, illustrator for package design, stage and costume designer. But Anita's primary interest remained to apply to painting, where dreams became reality and reality turned into dreams.

Anita's work has undergone miscellaneous phases and these have always been somewhat connected with her current subject of dreams. There were periods of American Indian dream tradition, periods influenced by Christian mysticism, examples of fairytale figures and others. Initially influenced by the art of Pre-Raphaelites Anita soon developed her very own distinctive style, working preferrably with acrylic and pastel. Her style of painting has became remarkable now and can be identified easily among contemporary art.

Anita's current painting period is strongly associated with Japanese imagery. A part of this work is going to be exhibited at the Daugava Gallery in Riga, Latvia in may 2005.

Anita's works have been presented in exhibitions in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Latvia and Sweden. Her paintings are part of private collections in Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Latvia, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the USA.
