About Elena Yuzefovich

 
 
  • Biography
    I find inspiration for my work in different subjects, such as cityscapes, architecture, portraits, and historical forms of transport. I particularly enjoy drawing people. People in interaction, in communication, in movement and in dance. Being a long-time fan of Flamenco I like to draw performers in motion at their shows. Another big part of my work includes old industrial buildings. However, most of all, I am drawn to portrait painting.
      
    I choose the medium I work with depending on the subject I am painting. For old rusty boats, trains or civil constructions I would use oil pastel, which is perfect for producing textures and intense colors. When I want to reflect vibrant and colorful cityscapes, I often choose to use watercolors. For capturing fast movements or flamenco dancers, I use ink.

    Also, my choice of material depends on whether I work indoors or outdoors. I prefer to work on location, especially while traveling, and in these situations, I favor mediums that are easy to transport and use outside, such as oil pastels, watercolor and graphic materials. For oil paintings, portraits and nude models, I work in a studio.

    My favorite medium at the moment is oil paint. However, I am continuously developing my style and trying different techniques and materials. In general, I tend to make bigger artworks when possible, especially when working with oil paint or oil pastel.

    Since 2016 I have participated in several exhibitions and art festivals like:
    Festival du carnet de voyage 2017 in Carcassonne, France
    Rendez-Vous du carnet de Voyage 2018 in Clermond-Ferrand, France
    Diari di Viaggio Festival 2019 in Ferrara, Italy
    Matite in Viaggio 2016-2020 in Mestre-Venice, Italy. Where one of my paintings was selected as the official image of the exhibition for this year.
    I also took part in several group exhibitions in Moscow, and have had four personal exhibitions in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
