Elisa Rossi is an artist based in Los Angeles and uses different mediums (oil, acrylic, char-coal, pastels) to create expressive artworks that fluctuate between figuration and abstrac-tion.
Elisa was raised and born in Carpi, Italy, where she received formal classical piano training and art education since age 5.
After earning a Master's Degree in International Relations in 2010 from L.U.I.S.S. Guido Carli university, she lived in Belgrade, Berlin and Brussels while pursuing a career in pub-lic affairs. During those years, she was in parallel cultivating her visceral, ever-present pas-sion for visual arts, with a focus on human rights, social justice and spirituality..
She now uses painting to explore the symbiotic relationship between the subconscious mind and the artistic output. Carl G. Jung’s work ‘The Red Book’ deeply impacted her in approaching this area of research along with 'The Soul Code. In search of character and calling' written by James Hillman.
She lives her art as a vehicle to authentically deepening her inner investigation while es-tablishing an emotional connection with the audience and has developed a peculiar, orig-inal visual language that evokes dreamlike, metaphysical worlds, childlike strokes com-bined with exploration of the human body, natural elements and sensorial themes.
Paradox and synesthesia drive her creative flow as she can't separate the process of paint-ing from music.
