About

Born:                        1980

Lives and works:  Larnaca, Cyprus

 

Elena's work is characterized by a delicate observation that seeks to elicit the sensations, memories, and wonder associated with our experiences and encounters. Tsigaridou has filtered her experiences into a personal and contemporary visual language. These finely rendered images provoke us to look beneath the surface into the realm of strange alliances, symbolisms, and meanings. Her work evokes the private world of personal identity and inner state.

 

Elena Tsigaridou earned her B.A. with Distinction (in Fine Art, Painting),  from the Academia di Belle Arti, in Rome Italy. She is currently directing the Creative Art School, Ispirazione in Athienou, Cyprus that she founded and is an Art and Design Teacher at the American Academy Private School in Larnaca, Cyprus. Elena’s works have been the subject of numerous exhibitions in Cyprus, Italy, and Brussels.
