About Elena Markova
I was born in Russia, where
I graduated from the academy of music, specializing in piano.
In adulthood, I had lived in New York for over 10 years and studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology, majoring in video editing and animation. I was also involved in photography and painting.
I have been living in Amsterdam since 2013, and I am exclusively engaged in painting. My paintings are found in private collections in New York, Holland and Russia, and are also given to charitable organizations. I participate in various exhibitions. I continue to learn from Russian painters using a variety of methods and techniques, and I express myself in various themes that resonate with my perception of the world at this moment. I use a realistic and romantic painting styles, but I am also not a stranger to intuitive painting, since I always tend to look for something new. Experimentation takes a big part in my work.
