Plain white wall with a poster of an idol from a magazine, granny's wallpaper from the last century or a room painted with the wrong color? Sound familiar? Yes, but also common.
How many times have you dreamed of waking up in Manhattan, a distant or exotic island, or in Neverland? About having fun with Marilyn Monroe, Dylan Dog or characters from Disney's cartoons? A figure that will add warmth, imagination and inspiration to your space? Do you like the perfection of geometric forms more or the freedom of abstract curve? Are you a minimalist or you are prone to many details? Strong contrasts and subtle blending of shades? Warm or cool colors? The symmetry or asymmetry?
No matter if you are in the comfort of your own home or at work, in a restaurant, a coffee shop, or a beauty salon, the fact is that most of your life is spent surrounded by walls. Due to the pace that we live in we do not notice them, but they are there and unconsciously send signals. These signals are sent to you, your friends, guests, clients, customers - all the visitors of that space. Only YOU decide if the signals will be good or bad.
Colors and shapes space can visually enlarge, reduce, make it warmer, emphasize some elements in the room and with a small investment refresh the space (permanently and uniquely).
WALL ARTIST, ANITA GENC.
"A painting requires a little mystery, some courage and a lot of fantasy." - Anita Genc
Born on April 25, 1985 in Varaždin, Croatia, Anita's (3rd generation artist) family was already long into painting and restoration. She's most thankful to her late father as he was the one that encouraged her, believed in her and gifted her with her first paint brush set. Words he shared with her that she will never forget: "Courage is embedded in you. You are looking fear right in the eye and saying: get the hell out of my way, I've got things to do, people to see and only one world to conquer." Her father passed away when Anita was 11 years and the age of 14, Anita left the small town she grew up in and moved to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia to attend High School. After graduating, she attended the College of Art and received a degree in Visual Arts. "I've been imagining and creating stories my entire life, characters and events that would make this world that we live in even more colorful and alive - I'm in love with life, and I know that there is so much more to it then we see with a clear eye."
MEETING WITH CLIENTS
Initial stage of each and every project is a site visit and meeting with the client, where the idea they have is discussed. This is followed up with a brainstorming session where a computer generated mock-up is created. Anita encourages her clients to give as much history about the place and talk in depth about their vision as that acts as her guide in the story that she paints.
High quality paint-brushes and Caparol wall colors - each made for a different surface. Paint is odorless, moisture resistant, highly pigmented and completely ecological.
SERIOUSLY THOUGH, WHAT DOES SHE REALLY DO?
She visualizes, design and paints a wall by combining the color spectrum so she could achieve a whole new dimension of harmony in the area in which you will live/work/play. Her work is the missing part of the puzzle. Her colorful painting ideas and techniques transform a space into a truly fantastic atmosphere.
