“If you’re looking for one art show to attend this year, I’d like to suggest Thinkspace’s upcoming 5 Year Anniversary blow out. Established in 2005, Thinkspace is one of the few galleries who doesn’t just follow trends, they start them.” – MyModernMet.com
’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with Ana Bagayan
Tell us a little bit about your piece for Thinkspace’s ‘5 Year Anniversary Show’ this November?
I’m doing a series of drawings and paintings for my next show which feature portraits with insects crawling on the face and hair. It’s always been a fear of mine to have insects crawling on me and I like the idea that something so small and simple can give you the willies.
What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
Graduating from college.
Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
Music, my laptop, my boyfriend Ara and our dog Sushi, and coffee (I don’t like sleeping.)
Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
Still alive, hopefully.
What have you got coming up in 2011?
I have a solo drawing show at FB69 Gallery in Munster, Germany and various group shows (plus a solo with Thinkspace in early 2012).
