Elisa Rossi is a mixed media abstract artist based in Los Angeles. She is represented by Wonzimer gallery in Los Angeles and ATO gallery in New York.
Elisa was raised and born in Carpi, Italy, where she received formal classical piano training 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 public affairs.
During those years, she was in parallel cultivating her visceral, ever-present passion for visual arts, mostly through drawing and photography. In every place where she lived, the diverse local cultural and historical heritage deeply inspired the development of her creative imagery, as well as the topics that later on inspire her artworks.
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.
She lives her art as a vehicle to authentically deepening her inner investigation while establishing an emotional connection with the audience and has developed a peculiar, original visual language that evokes dreamlike, metaphysical worlds.
