Aysel Annagi was born in Baku, educated in Bristol, and then returned to Azerbaijan to attend the Faculty of Theatre Design, where she studied art for eight years. She moved to Milan in 2013, and thanks to Fondazione MAIMERI she kept cultivating her passion for painting. To make her artistic training even more complete, in 2016 she turned to sculpture, giving shape to the protagonists of her paintings. In 2018, Aysel Annagi worked on a new series of sculptures, conceived for public parks in Baku, Azerbaijan, and she realised them in Italy. Thanks to her background, Aysel Annagi is in charge of foreign student relations and some of the academy’s organisational aspects.
