Elena Shlegel. Belarusian Artist
The artist says: “An artist lives partially in a dream - just like a poet does. I strive to reflect something impossible to exist…to allow an audience to see beyond the reality, to make up its own fairy-tale, to become a participator and a creator. And thus to feel happy for a moment…”
Elena Shlegel defines her style of painting as “courtly romanticism”.
The artist was born in Minsk, Belarus, in 1965. She studied at the Minsk Art College and later at the Belarusian Art Academy (Monumental Art Department).
In 2005 she is a grant holder of the Ministry of Culture of Belarus.
