Annya Sand is a British Artist, originally from Kazakhstan. Annya works in oil. Her work is predominantly abstract, though often inhabited by figures, her paintings never sit within a conceptual framework. Annya has always been heavily inspired by Kazakh art culture.


In 2010 she took the initiative to expose the art of Central Asia to the Western World. In September of the same year, Annya assisted in a superb unique loan exhibition of Kazakh and Russian Art from the Kasteev State Museum of Arts. The exhibition "Treasures of Kazakhstan" was held in Christie's London and featured 75 extraordinary masterpieces of Kazakh and Russian art of the 20th Century. Many of the displayed works never were seen outside Central Asia before.

A major achievement in her art career and highlight is her most recent exhibition was when Annya was selected by the minister of culture of the Kyrgyzstan Republic to exhibit her paintings at the G. Aytievv Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts. She is also currently presenting her work in the National Museum of Kazakhstan(her native country) in the A.Kasteev state Museum of Arts. Annya's work is now proudly displayed alongside some of the great artists of Kazakhstan and Former Soviet States. </div>
