Living in Los Angeles, the United States, being inspired by Kazimir Malevich, El Lissitzky, Wassily Kandinsky, led to her abstract expressionism. With my art, I want to create positive and surreal worlds. Today, we talk to Elena Chukhlebova.
Elena never sits down to work in a bad mood, because she believes that all emotions are reflected in her work. She believes that art should evoke good emotions because there are so many things in the world that cause bad ones. If she’s tired or if she’s had a hard day, she meditates for 10-20 minutes before sitting down to work.
“I have the ambition to have more exhibitions around the world. It is my dream to see myself collaborating with interesting brands, artists and galleries, and of course, I would love to have my work being sold at an auction.
I still sit at the computer and edit photos, but now I pay more attention to creative art processing. Because of quarantine and the pandemic, I have cancelled all my travel plans and now I am processing my huge photo archive. But I believe that new beautiful places, photos, and artwork are waiting for me!
My art was born from my two favourite techniques – digital photography and liquid art. In my photos, I show the real beauty of nature, and with the help of art, I express my emotions and deep feelings. I like traditional art but prefer digital because there are more control and less mess. It saves a lot of time and I can do it at any place in the world!
The pandemic has actually changed me as an artist. During this time, I have sorted out my photo archive (and continue to do it), started to work more actively on social networks, and I have been working a lot on my portfolio. Since the beginning of the pandemic, I accepted an invitation to participate in three exhibitions, in Milan and New York, and met many interesting artists and portals, including your wonderful project
