Elena Grib is a self-taught Russian artist who began painting from a young age. Relocating to Italy, she is fascinated by the power of nature and paints worlds that symbolise freedom, openness and connection. She studied architecture in Moscow and has lived all over the world to explore the ‘art of life’. She paints in harmony with emotions, feelings and sensations which help to inform her palette. Her creations are inspired by a simple lifestyle, the ambience of surfing culture and the feeling of 'living the life of the ocean’.
