✿ Elena FLEROVA ✿













































Elena Flerova - Елена Флерова - born in Moscow, USSR, in 1943, Flerova graduated with honors from the prestigious Surikov Fine Arts Institute in 1969. Her top graduate standing won her a scholarship to the National Academy of Fine Arts, an exclusive school admitting only a limited number of exceptionally gifted artists. Both institutions assisted Elena in maturing her great talent and establishing authentic academic skills. Combined with her inherent ability to create sophisticate compositions, these skills empowered Elena Flerova to devise unique artwork.The avenue in which the artist uses light and shadow, color and composition equates her with old European masters. All these properties are efficiently used by Elena for conveying both mood and movement in her paintings. At the same time, her exceptional mastery in providing the presence of vibrating air illumination relates her with more recent impressionists. The artist refrains from any preparatory sketches and starts working directly with brush and canvas. This freedom distinguishes her in a favorable way from the majority of contemporary realists working in a less dynamic manner.
Flerova is a master monoprint painter as well as an award-winning book and magazine illustrator, watercolorist and etcher. In the tradition of old masters, and unlike typical monoprint artists, Elena forges jeweler-like results by refining her work following the transfer. Meticulous details sharpened by intense color and provocative lighting create masterftil three-dimensional illusion.
Over the course of her professional career, Elena Flerova has been recognized as an exceptional talent. She has had numerous one person shows in Europe and North America. Her works have been shown in more than 80 national and international exhibitions and won numerous awards and honors. Paintings by Elena Flerova are held in many private collections in the United States and abroad.
