Anka Lavriv is a visual artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Born in Ukraine, her heritage and childhood love of black ink lithographs is visible in the clean lines of her intricate drawings. Influenced by mysticism and the occult, her imagery of mysterious women and ethereal botanicals is steeped in ancient symbolism. She has exhibited her work with numerous galleries in New York and beyond.

Anka is also the co-owner of Black Iris Tattoo in Brooklyn where she translates her elegant illustrations of goddesses and portraits of animals into highly refined permanent art for the skin.
