Anda Kubis is a recognized Canadian abstract painter and Associate Professor at OCAD University. She works in expanded digital and large-scale oil painting. As an artist and educator, Anda is committed to aesthetics and creativity as they positively impact human flourishing and quality of life.
Evocative of idyllic landscapes or microscopic imagery, Anda’s abstract paintings provoke perception and conjure a wide range of associations. She uses colour to reflect an entirely contemporary world – one that is seen with light yet shaped by the invisibility of our digital tools. Attractive and at moments destabilizing, Anda’s paintings toggle between data and the material realm, just as we all do in order to participate in contemporary life. Informed by the tenets of Modernism, and their criticisms, Anda’s work emerges from her love of painting combined with a desire to elevate daily experience.
Anda Kubis has shown widely in North America and Europe. Numerous public and private collections have acquired her work, including: ScotiaBank, Capital One, RBC, TD Bank, BMO Art Bank, Cenovus Energy, Inter Pipeline – Calgary, Keg Restaurants, Nordstrom, Aimia, The Westaim Corporation, Rodin Law Firm Litigation Counsel, and the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development.
