Cool Friends: Anna Weyant

Meet Anna, a New York-based fine artist whose works have recently taken the art world by storm (seriously, just google her name and check out all the press.) We’re drawn to Anna’s work for its soft aesthetic and light spirit. We caught up with Anna to hear about what’s inspiring her for the final cool friends feature of 2021.

How did you begin your career as a fine artist?
I had been working for Charlap Hyman & Herrero in NYC when the firm curated a group show in Miami. I was painting when I had time but I wasn’t exhibiting the work. Adam, one of the firm’s principals, included one of my paintings in the Miami show. It was very kind.
