Information

Hi, I'm Anej (/ʌneɪ/ ≈ anei), a 23-year-old London-based animation student, an aspiring storyteller, and animation director.

My practice focuses on concept development and art direction of stop-motion animated films.

Thus far, I've been working on a diverse range of animation projects, gallery installations, VR experiences, and exploring the world of sonic fiction. In my free time, I fill my pockets with some gouache tubes, pack my sketchbook and go sketching on location.
📌 London, UK 🇬🇧

🏫 Royal College of Art

🏫 Willem de Kooning Academie 🇳🇱

🎂 1999, Maribor, Slovenia 🇸🇮


When I'm not an artist, you'll probably find me wandering around 🥾 somewhere in the great outdoors 🏔, touring on my steel vintage bike 🚲, wearing my scout scarf ⚜️, traveling the world 🧳 or spending way too much time in the kitchen 🥘 trying out some new recipes.
