Fresh Paint in Italy by Elbi Elem
The multi-talented artist works with varying materials and compositions. She has a great fondness for the silence of abandoned spaces and the memories left behind by the people that shared, lived or worked in that location. Such experiences lend weight to the outcome of her artwork in that particular spot. Barcelona based Elbi Elem was invited to paint in Italy by the organisers of Festival Without Frontiers, alongside a host of internationally recognised artists. We’ve documented her amazing kinetic sculptures in the past, so there’s no telling what she may create next.
‘In this work I played with the balconies to create profundity and integrate the composition in the space, wanting “to hold” in some way the building, also I used earth colors and from the surroundings. The direction of the main lines go to a same point, inspired in the Sun of Lunetta’. Elbi Elem
