Elena Tsigaridou received her B.A. 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 works as an Art and Design Teacher at a private school. Elena’s works have been the subject of numerous exhibitions in Cyprus, Italy, UAE and Brussels. Elena's work is characterised by 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 in to the realm of strange alliances, symbolism and meanings. She uses different mediums to create such as ink, acrylic, oil paint, strings, graphite, glass paint and paper.
