"Last Summer I became obsessed with acrylic pouring. I tried and tried, it is mesmerizing the way paint mixes and takes charge. Scientific in a way too: I had to learn to add Fluetrol, what amount of water is needed not to crack when drying, experimented with different kinds of silicone and hair oil :) I even tried adding floor cleaning polish and paint became shiny. There is no one place at home without drops of paint, one night even the cat left her feet all over with gray paint. I explored many color combinations, many ways of pouring until one day I just didn’t have the will to do it anymore. I needed to paint."

Aneliya Kostova

New York City

“We all need art in our lives. Art is how we dress. Art is how we apply makeup or make our hair, nails. Art is how we move; art is everywhere. I dream of world of harmony and peace, kindness and compassion. A perfect world where people love and respect each other. No hunger or poverty, kids growing without knowing lack, in loving environment, lifting their little spirits up. My art is little piece of that dream.”

Aneliya Kostova was born in a small town in Bulgaria. She moved to New York City as a young adult and currently lives in the Bronx. She describes, “I moved to New York from another continent, just with a bag of clothes. I had to leave it all: my successful company, my family and friends, my education which didn’t matter here. I came to chase my dreams, to look for God and discover myself.” Aneliya was diagnosed with severe anxiety and depression soon after she moved, which made it difficult for her to leave her home for years. She is currently receiving treatment at Montefiore Medical Center and utilizing art as a way to cope with her struggles. She says, “I love drawing and have dreams about paintings. Sometimes verbal communication is not enough to express your feelings; art is the best way for me to do so."

Aneliya has three children and is currently finishing a PhD in health care administration, which she describes as her most significant life accomplishment. She works as a Community Liaison in North Central Bronx Hospital and feels rewarded that she gets to give back to her community. She loves to swim, garden, walk, run, and explore the neighborhoods of New York City.

Aneliya is ecstatic to be part of the ArtLifting community, as this is her first time selling her artwork. She says, “Being part of ArtLifting is a life-changing event for me. It gives me sense of belonging somewhere where I am accepted as who I am. Being approved made me so happy, I did some new drawing just to express that overwhelming feeling. I hope our viewers take some of that inner peace I am trying to give.”
