About Anna Victoria
As one of the world’s very few ‘PowerPoint artists’, Anna uses the common digital presentation software to slowly build unique visuals from a limited toolkit of shapes. She was driven to this experimentation during New Zealand’s first lockdown, when she was without access to her other materials and digital tools.
Her current subject is architecture, with an emphasis on heritage buildings that she can find and study locally. She likes to research each building deeply before rebuilding them in her own way, simplifying lines, enhancing symmetry and choosing soft, complementary tones.
As PowerPoint has been made for screen, not print, much trial and error has gone into translating her digital art into its physical form. The result is a series of limited edition giclee prints on archival quality paper.
In 2021, Anna joined one hundred artists exhibiting at the inaugural Art in the Park, held at Eden Park. She was honoured to win the Emerging Artist Award. She continues to expand her collection, searching for interesting and inspiring architecture wherever she goes.
