About Elena Yuzefovich

 
 
  • Biography

    I was born in Moscow and that is where I grew up. After completing my degree at the Moscow State Stroganov Academy of Industrial and Applied Arts, I have had the opportunity to work in different fields of design including, industrial and graphical design, as well as set design for concerts, events and TV studios.

    Drawing and painting are a daily creative activity for me. Artwork of some type is made every day, whether it is a quick sketch or a complex painting.

    I find inspiration for my work in different subjects, such as landscapes, street scenes, machines, new places I visit, interesting situations I come across as well as people who are dear to me. These drawings allow me to remember the fondest and most valuable moments of my life.

    Whenever I look at a scene, my subconscious begins to work out how I might paint it, capture light, movement, and atmosphere.

    I particularly enjoy drawing people. People in interaction, in communication, in movement and in dance. For example, being a long-time fan of flamenco, I visit as many flamenco performances as possible, where I like to draw performers in motion.

    My favorite mediums of the moment are watercolour and ink. However, I am continuously developing my style and trying different techniques and materials.

     Please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to answer all your questions.

    Thank you for your interest and hope that you enjoy them.

    Event: Festival du carnet de voyage

    Dates: June 9, 2017 - June 11, 2017

    Venue: Halles Prosper Montagne, Carcassonne, France

    An exhibition of the works that artists created on their travels.
    At the exhibition I presented sketches which I made while in Madrid, where I spent a few weeks in February this year and was fascinated by the city. What struck me the most was the contrast between the city during the day and night. The majestic daytime Madrid enticed me to draw some of its grand architecture and beautiful views of the old city from the roof tops. Night-time Madrid, with all the lights, lively bars and streets filled with people, invited me to draw the inhabitants of this city, in the squares, bars and restaurants as well the night metro.
    Also, being a long-time fan of flamenco, I try to visit as many flamenco performances as possible, where I drew performers in motion. It is a very interesting experience, and I also presented some of those sketches.

    Event: Venice

    Dates: Dec. 5, 2016 - May 12, 2017

    Venue: Center of Spanish culture Flamenqueria, Moscow

    The exhibition of the watercolor paintings I did in Venice in November 2016. I stayed there for three weeks, and during this time, I met with many artists, sketched with them, and found inspiration in their styles. When I was in the city alone, Venice inspired me at every corner. I was working with watercolors, because the city is full of colors and I had plenty of time to sketch. I was excited and inspired by the city, when I felt happy painting.

    Event: Matite in Viaggio

    Dates: Sept. 30, 2016 - Oct. 16, 2016

    Venue: Centro Culturale Candiani, Venice Mestre

    The theme of the exhibition was “Sketches on your journey” and I decided to go to Saint Petersburg and spend a week sketching this marvelous city. However, my planes suddenly changed. Upon arrival, I fell ill and was unable to leave the apartment. After a couple of days of being unable to go out, I found myself staring out of the apartment's windows. There were five windows, which shared some common features; the yellowish colour on the walls, old window frames and nothing but buildings which one after the other went so high that they blocked my view of the sky. This atmosphere, combined with the views out of the five windows brought back memories of a well-known literary work by Fedor Dostoevsky ­"Crime and Punishment", where the author describes the city, much as it was seen out of my windows. The yellow colour is described by the author as the colour of insanity and madness, which together with the city’s depressive mood, contributed to the motives of the crimes in the novel.
