Anja Wulf is a bit of a paradox—a classic mix of tradition and contrariness. Born in New York to German parents, Anja carries passports from both Germany and the United States and has lived on both U.S. coasts, Belgium, the Caribbean, and western Africa. She is a self-taught artist who graduated with honors from The University of Chicago, majoring in anthropology. She has authored two books, “California Wine Country—Impressions in Oil” and “Exploring America’s Wine Country—Impressions In Oil.”
Anja resides in Austin and San Miguel de Allende, an artists’ colony in the mountains of central Mexico.
It is this timeless environment and her love of nature that inspires the fundamental source of Anja’s art. Her style combines deceptively simple forms that personify her love of light and space—illuminating an evocative, poetic, and peaceful yet compelling composition and palette. Her paintings strive to present in tangible form the classic beauty and imaginativeness of natural settings. In many ways, her art reflects her reality—the magical, mystical experiences of life—exercises in wonder, raw energy, and joy.
In addition to her original paintings (acrylic on board or canvas), she employs a state-of-the-art system that creates limited edition prints using special pigmented inks, individually produced by hand on museum quality paper.
