Beauty and Grit: Anita Goldstein from Cambridge, UK

Anita Goldstein‘s female figures are delicate in form but fierce in tone. Her drawings feel “lived in”, and undone. Her type of beauty is tough, independent and never saccharine. We love the influences of Egon Schiele peeking through. Her works contain the emotional pull of classical drawing mixed with the sensibility of contemporary life, bringing out both the frustrations and grit of today’s youth. The muted colors of It’s always about you leads us to a quiet, introspective moment in a crowded world. The smouldering eyes and cool tattooed girls are part of her ongoing research into feminine face and figure. She’s got a sarcastic side too. Don’t miss her quick wit and humor in Deerest hipster and Army tan.

Anita Goldstein is a Tel-Aviv born artist, based in Cambridge, U.K. Working in hand-drawn and digital media, her drawings capture the sexy stripped-down lives of tattooed ladies in precious, deft linework. Her illustrations have been exhibited in group exhibitions: Design Festa (Toyko), Changing Spaces (Cambridge), Brick Lane (London) and The Other Art Fair (London). Her work has been published in several art and design magazines including Domus, neo collective, Juxtapoz, Popshot, Supersonic Electronic and Computer Arts.
