Elena Lobanova comes from a Russian family of artists. Inspired by her grandfather, a landscape painter, she attended the art school for painting in Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine). After her first exhibitions in the then Soviet Union, she became known to a wide audience in the rest of Europe, especially for her fascinating depictions of bulls. She creates her motifs with different materials and techniques. For example, spatula technique, airbrush, oil chalk, acrylic paint or even impact metal. Not only with her monumental portraits, but also otherwise, the artist is always breaking new ground and thus proves her versatility and her desire to always try something new and to be on the pulse of time. Exhibitions in London and New York - among others at the Art Expo - underline her continuing success.
