Thyra Holst, hailing from Germany, has had a profound journey in the world of art. Her initial years were immersed in classical ballet, leading to a decade-long career as a professional dance teacher. This artistic inclination evolved as she ventured into the realm of fine arts, exploring mediums such as photography, acrylic structure painting, and felting sheep's wool.
The turning point in her career came upon meeting Anjan Ghosh, a photographer from Kolkata. This encounter led to the formation of the artist duo Thyra&Anjan. Together, they have developed a distinctive style of digital painting. Their collaboration is a blend of Thyra's conceptual acumen and Anjan's spirited creativity, resulting in artworks that encourage self-exploration and discovery among viewers.
The duo's nomination for 'AURA 2024' is a testament to their innovative approach and contribution to the contemporary art scene. Their presence at this prestigious event is eagerly anticipated by art enthusiasts and professionals alike.
