Born in Sydney, Australia, Anna Coroneo distinguishes herself as an artist as well as a designer, often using her artwork as the inspiration for prints that are translated across various avenues of design, including fashion, interiors, stationery, and accessories. Coroneo is based between New York and London, and is inspired constantly by her surroundings, which she infuses into her designs. Coroneo is known for her use of bold colours and vivacity in her artwork and often references botanical and marine life inspirations.
Coroneo has exhibited her photographs and paintings internationally at solo, group shows and at art fairs worldwide since 2005, including Art Basel Miami, Art Sydney and The AAF in New York.
Anna Coroneo’s art is collected internationally and she has been commissioned by both private collectors and corporate clients. Coroneo has hosted events during New York Fashion week since 2009, and her unique prints feature on fashion items that sell at the leading luxury department stores internationally. Anna Coroneo also enjoys collaborative projects and has created exclusive artist series of products for world-renowned companies.
“I am constantly inspired by vibrant patterns and textures in both the natural and built environments. I enjoy exploring botanical and marine life inspirations, which I often contrast with references to the manmade world. Whilst my paintings frequently juxtapose intricate brushstrokes with an intense use of bold colour, my photographs tend to highlight natural textures and shapes from an abstract perspective. My creative process often involves breaking down the barriers across art and design disciplines, by adapting my artworks and translating them across various media.”
Coroneo completed her graduate degree from Parsons, The New School in New York in 2008, where she was merited on the Dean’s List. She has also completed studies at Central Saint Martins in London and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Design (Hons) at the College of Fine Arts (University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia).
