Elena Soloveva is a painter and a graphic artist living and working in Adelaide. Elena has completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Russia and has worked as a graphic designer for 5 years. “Art has always been a very important part of my life, and through my paintings, I try to express the beauty and uniqueness of nature, people and objects around us”. Elena works in oil and acrylic techniques and finds plein air as one of the most inspirational experiences for an artist. From various still life compositions to the scenic views of South Australian landscapes Elena expresses her vision and her experience of places or objects which special significance can be sometimes unnoticed at the first sight but their beauty is revealed when transferred on canvas.
