Explore Portraiture & Identity in Art, Pop Art and the iconic works of Andy Warhol with artist Anca Danila, in this two-part workshop for adults.

‘It’s not what you are that counts, it’s what they think you are’ Andy Warhol

Join artist Anca Danila for a two part painting workshop for adults exploring portraiture and identity in art. Taking inspiration from Pop Art and, in particular, the iconic works of Andy Warhol, we will delve into the notion of Identity in art, creating vibrant works by playing with bright colours and varied heightened contrast reminiscent of this dynamic and exciting art movement.

No experience necessary. All materials provided.

Anca Danila is a visual artist born in Romania and based in Dublin where she lives and has worked for more than a decade. She has a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Art and Design Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Her works have been displayed in numerous exhibitions in institutions and galleries around the world. Passionate about psychology, sociology and contemporary anthropology, Anca talks about Identity in a world of Globalisation. Her artistic concerns, in the last ten years, are a reflection on her own process of migration, emphasizing the “patterns” common to all, regardless of the country of origin. In addition to her artistic activity, Anca has also been teaching art for over 10 years, sharing her artistic knowledge with both children and adults.
