Anita Klein is a much loved and prolific British artist. Originally from Australia, Anita has been based in London for four decades and become one of the country’s leading established artists.
In this interview with Malini Mehra, founder of the Teach A Girl To Swim (TAGS) campaign, filmed at the Eames Fine Art Gallery in south London, Anita Klein speaks about WATER, her latest collection of paintings and prints.
Largely produced in London during the COVID-19 lockdown, when Anita was unable to travel as usual to her Italian art studio, the WATER exhibition illustrates the importance of art and swimming in coping with the crisis. A lifelong swimmer, Anita reflects on the connections between water, health, empowerment and climate action.
