Finnish artist ANNA KLAUS studied painting under different teachers all trough the 1970’s. She has been drawing and painting semi-professionally since the mid-80’s.

In Finland ANNA KLAUS has so far only exhibited her work in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s at a few collective exhibitions inside mainstream art forms, but as a fetish artist her works have appeared in many central European magazines since 1993. In 1995 the Dutch company SublieM published two of ANNA’s paintings as postcards.

ANNA KLAUS’ first fetish art solo exhibition was held at the Europerve gala (organized by Demask) in Amsterdam in 1998. Anna’s international breakthrough came in 1999 at the first international fetish art fair, ArtBizarre 99 (organized by Marquis) in Cologne/Köln. With 50 exhibited paintings the Kinky Copenhagen event (organized by Bite The Apple / Manifest) in 2003 was so far the largest showing of ANNA KLAUS’ artwork. From this exhibition some works were acquired by the Copenhagen Museum Erotica.

In 2004 visitors of the all-European netsite dom-unique.com voted ANNA KLAUS fetish painter of the year. In 2005 ANNA KLAUS exhibited at the Fetish Evolution Expo in Ratingen, Germany. At all of the fetish exhibitions mentioned above, ANNA KLAUS exhibited under the name Anna Kuritus. From the beginning of 2017 she changed her name to ANNA KLAUS.

ANNA KLAUS’ next fetish art exhibition will occur at Galleria A2 in Helsinki in June-July 2023. It will be a retrospective celebrating her 30 years as a fetish painter.

Galleria A2 järjestää ANNA KLAUSin fetissitaidenäyttelyn kesä-heinäkuussa 2023. Kyseessä on ANNAn ensimmäinen fetissitöiden näyttely hänen kotimaassaan, ja se tulee olemaan koko hänen 30-vuotisen uransa kattava retrospektiivi.
