Ania Tomicka was born in 1985 in Lodz, Poland.
When she was only 9 she moved to Italy, where she started to draw seriously: manga first and realistic things afterwards. She attended an art institute and graduated in 2004. During the school years she starts to paint with oil colours, a technique soon to become her favourite one. Hence she attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice where she found a lot of inspiration for her realistic and academic art. A year later she moved to Tuscany where she attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence. She got interested in other things like digital art, illustration and new materials like wood.
She is currently studying at the Nemo Academy of Digital Arts.
Ania has always been interested in realistic, renaissance works. Her first loves are Salvador Dalì and Wojtek Siudmak's big canvases, full of absurd and strange things, painted in a divine way.
Her current paintings are inspired by the American Pop Surrealist movement.
She also likes ponies. Oh, and squirrels.
