Behind the Scense
More About Elisa's Life
As a child I was very much exposed to art and both my parents encouraged me to draw, paint and be creative in any possible way. Exploring new cultures, languages, art, being curious and cultivating a great sense of direction.
I’ve always drawn and coloured but one of my first art memory was when I was 8years old and went to Fortunato Depero (Italian Futurist) art show. I’ve never seen such use of colours and figures repetition before. And as soon as we hopped back into the car, on the way back home, I started drawing, inspired by new shapes.
I found my pace, my rhythm and a new sky.
Closer sky, heavier, fast. So different from the Italian sky. It always feels like more sky.
Head in the clouds
The sky has considerable influence on Elisa's work, and over the last few years, every morning, while sipping a very milky cup of tea, she lets inspiration flow in, ready for a new canvas!
