Elena IosilevichNew York NY USA
Elena takes her inspiration from the great Impressionists as well as old masters of the Renaissance period, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, and Caravaggio. She is drawn towards the simple, unpretentious and quotidian. Elena strives to capture the mood and color of the surrounding world through her style and personal vision of reality. This sensibility is reflected in her graphic series “Love in three colors” and “Adam & Eve Rebirth”. Each depicts an emotional connection between people, expresses love, passions, and movement as a continuation of life.
