About the artist:
Twice named Saatchi’s ‘One to Watch’, award-winning British artist Natalie Dybisz a.k.a. Miss Aniela is at the forefront of avant-garde art photography. From first being noticed as a student in 2006 invited to exhibit internationally and speak for Microsoft, her work of 14 years since has fused contemporary fashion with classical art history to create an intricate balance of contemporary creativity. Exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery, Houses of Parliament and Waldermarsudde Museum Sweden, her work regularly graces media worldwide including BBC, NY Arts, Daily Mail and El Pais.
In detailed compositions with evocative lighting, allusion to Rococo Revival and impeccable detail of salon paintings of the 18th century, her 'Surreal Fashion' collection has become prolific with art collectors worldwide, and luxury venues such as the Crillon Hotel Paris and Paradise Resort Korea.
Her commercial clients include Nikon, HTC, and large-scale art commissions for prestigious London restaurants. In 2018 she collaborated with renowned Chinese couturier Guo Pei documented by the BBC in Beijing, and commissioned by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism to shoot a new hybrid of fantasy-fused stills and TV ad campaign. Based in South UK with her producer-partner Matt Lennard , they are experienced in providing the full production process for both personal and professional assignments, with connections to a network of experienced artists in videography and CGI to facilitate the growing need for cutting-edge artistry.
Miss Aniela was spotlighted in Saatchi Art’s ‘Invest in Art’ 2018 and ‘Refuse to be the Muse’ report on the growing power of women in photography.
Motherhood inspired her series ‘Birth Undisturbed’ (working under separate identity Natalie Lennard) depicting births of icons from the Virgin Mary to Calamity Jane and the Queen. The 4-year major project won Natalie the title of ND Photographer of the Year 2019, 12th Julia Margaret Cameron Award 2018, as well as finalist in Mother Art Prize, Kuala Lumpur Portrait Prize, and British Journal of Photography’s ‘Portrait of Humanity’ 2019.
