Anet Abnous is a Los Angeles-based Armenian American artist whose vision is instituted on feminine beauty and empowerment. With female figures as her muse, she creates breathtaking and abstract imagery symbolizing women’s liberation and rights.
Anet’s passion for arts started early in life and was nurtured and inspired by her father’s dressmaking and tailoring skills. She enrolled in sewing and pattern making classes at the age 16 and later earned a Fine Arts Degree from Queens College- CUNY. She recently received Women's Entrepreneurship Certification from Cornell University through Tory Burch Foundation Grant and as a female owned and led business that positively impacts our community, both socially and economically was selected to become a member of Female Founder Collective, founded by Rebecca Minkoff.
Anet’s creations are deeply compelling and culturally diverse. Her ethnic and cultural designs contrast the vibrant colors and impeccable details of traditional costumes and styles intertwined with subdued darker shades to divulge an art of striking beauty. Her paintings are displayed in several private collections and have showcased in galleries in New York, Rhode Island, California and Korea. Her creations and story have published in magazines and news such as Asbury Park, Burbank Leader, NY Art Magazine and others to name a few.
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 U.S. Her missions is about partnering with women and children based non-profit organizations through collaboration to raise funds and give back to her community and bring awareness to different cultures.
Anet’s Collection is “Wearable Art” which is the culmination of Anet’s dream to merge fine art, fashion and storytelling through stylish tees, fashionable scarves and unisex accessories.
