About Elena Tarigina

 
 
  • Biography
     I’m a graphic artist from Russia. I studied at Kuban State University in its Department of Graphic Art, with a degree in Graphic Art for Books. A have participated in local, regional and international exhibitions and festivals since 2003.
    2019 - participant of the international graphic arts festival “UNIGraphica”.
    2010 - Laureate of the international arts contest “Art Fanagoria”. My artworks are part of the collections of the Krasnodar Exhibition Hall of Fine Art and the Kovalenko Museum in Krasnodar, as well as private collections in Russia and abroad.
    I have been an avid reader since childhood and I often feel as though I live in an imaginary fantasy world. Books are my passion, and several series of works I have made were inspired by books. I am primarily occupied with illustrating books, but I also create independent series of artworks on themes of personal interest. I work in a technique of unique graphic art. My materials are mainly ink, India ink, fineliner and pencil on paper. I experiment with different kinds of paper and I am fascinated with different smooth and rough textures, as well as how a graphite pencil or stylus feels against them.
    In 2014 I participated in protests against deforestation in my city, and I spent three years in the Help the City council of Krasnodar. We rescued trees and planted new parks. When my third child was born I left the council, but I continue to take part in its activities. This is all reflected in my art: trees and animals are present in it one way or another, and I use the steampunk aesthetic to show the sorry state of the world. I take a keen interest in Slavic and Druid mythology, as both center on the divine nature of trees and people’s communication with their gods through them. In my artworks on the subject, plants, mechanisms and alchemical processes symbolize the worlds of Pravi (Upper World), Yavi (Real World) and Navi (Spirit World), respectively.
    My goal is to show my interpretation of the interrelation between the natural world and the hidden essence of things. To that end, I use the language of symbols. My art deals with the beauty of natural shapes, and by enhancing them with metallic details, I mean to show the relationship between today’s world and nature. I want my work sold worldwide. I dream that my art would be known all over the world.
