Join us on Tuesday, March 2nd at 3:30PM PST for the grand reveal of the latest creations from Anna Zhilyaeva.
Anna Zhilyaeva, also known as AnnaDreamBrush, is an immersive artist leading the way in virtual reality painting performance and mixed reality video art. Anna Zhilyaeva utilizes VR technology to push the painting medium past its limits. Her creations are complete visual experiences and painted sculptures that immerse the viewer from start to finish. Inspired by her extensive background in classical fine art and new exposures to virtual reality technology, Zhilayeava sought to build a bridge between the two disciplines, essentially creating her own medium in the process: “Volumism” is a new form of painting, pioneered by Zhilayeava, which uses VR technology to utilize volume and space to create 3D sculpted paintings which go far beyond the physical limitations of classic 2D painting.
Her revolutionary artworks and performances have been praised and witnessed by the world, including a 3D live interpretation of “Liberty Leading the People” (Eugène Delacroix) at the prestigious Louvre Museum. In 2019, she opened the Worldskills Competition with a VR painting performance in front of 45,000+ audience members. Zhilyaeva has also worked with Prada, HTC, Vive, Google, IBM, and Microsoft, and a number of other global brands on ground breaking VR art projects.
