Anet Abnous is a Los Angeles-based Armenian artist whose vision is feminine beauty and empowerment. With the female figure as her muse, she creates breathtaking abstract imagery symbolizing women’s liberation.
Born and raised in Iran during the Islamic revolution of the 1970’s, Anet nurtured her passion for the arts early on. Inspired by her father’s tailoring skills, she took sewing and pattern making classes at age 16, studied fashion design at Tehran’s Zahra University, and after immigrating to the U.S., earned a Fine Arts degree from Queens College, City University of New York in 2005.
An ardent supporter of women-centered causes, Anet co-curated Manhattan’s first Armenian female art exhibition in 2007, bringing together talented artists from Armenia, Syria and the U.S. She has also shown in galleries with the mission of ending violence against women.
Anet’s Collection is wearable, tangible art — the culmination of Anet’s dream to merge fine art, fashion and storytelling through elegant tees, scarves and note cards imprinted with her work.
