Welcome. Dec 16: Yana in Studio Choc Fac Nov 16

Yana Stajno is a writer and expressionist painter based in north London. She was born in Zimbabwe of Polish and French parents. She studied at Cape Town University where she became an anti-apartheid activist before moving to north London where she now lives. She has been drawing and painting for over ten years and continues to work at the Royal Drawing School in Shoreditch. Yana works as a contemporary artist from her studio at the Chocolate Factory in Wood Green, north London and is part of Crouch End Open Studios.

'Whether I’m painting landscapes, still lives or people, I’m constructing narratives. It is the moment before or just after something transformative has happened that interests me. I work initially from life, people, places, scenes I have witnessed. Sometimes the work remains a watercolour or a drawing. Often, I extend the subject into a big canvas in my studio. I am fortunate that people seem to resonate with my work and that my paintings are bought and collected all over the world.'

‘Yana’s work reminds us of joy and pleasures in an increasingly dystopian society.’
Dr Anna Birch, artistic director of 'Fragments & Monuments.'
