Anna Scary is a contemporary horror artist; she graduated from the art high school in 2007 and she moved to Venice (where she still lives) to start her studies at the “Academy of Fine Arts” where she gets the first and second level artistic diploma with the highest score. The academic year’s marks, in particular, the artistic and personal path of the artist who is inspired by different artists of different artistic currents in also different years. The study of contemporary art leads her to greater awareness and pictorial determination, making some elements typical and iconic of Anna’s artworks.

Since childhood, Anna has shown a strong propensity for art, in fact producing art was almost an innate necessity that has been shown in her since when she was a child; during the academic course, she participated in various collective exhibitions and competitions. 

Once the academic path is over follows a period of artistic silence for 6 years, in the summer of 2019 Anna returns to paint with a more decisive and mature style that according to her is still evolving. Each canvas is  an experience that leads to evolution; in her works the moods, thoughts, and perceptions are exorcised through entities placed in caothoc and dark  scenarios, Anna paints freely and spontaneously, gives life to her works through strong chromatic backgrounds and contrasts that accentuate form and emotions .


It is not always easy to explain the deeper meaning that lies behind each of my canvases. There are always so many things that can only be told through the emotions and feelings aroused by my works. My art is life, reflection, it asks questions together with concepts often linked to what is hidden and dark but which also brings a veil of hope in its dramatic and bloody darkness. The strong and lively colours, contrasted with dark colors with strong signs, the marked expressions on the faces of the characters I portray are the main fulcrum of my painting, through this I am able to express myself at my best. I have gotten this far by experimenting with various techniques that I have combined over the years, I have gone from figurative to a distorted form, almost to the point of canceling it, bringing chaos to the canvas and then finding a new form.
    This led me to a style that characterizes me; However, I believe that over time there will be further stylistic evolutions because for me the evolution of both self and art is important and for me they are closely connected. 
I define my art as "disturbing realism", it is closely linked to horror because through it I express the most suffocated and hidden part of our being, of our feeling and thinking, what we don't want to see and which instead is there and shouldn't to be ignored but welcomed and transmuted; often my canvases cast their gaze on this sick and never healthy society, indeed a true horror populated by monsters and demons, my subjects are internal monstrosities who give vent to their screams through the canvas.
