Elise Wilk is a French graphic illustrator who submitted her work to Creativation Space. We were quite impressed by the originality of her work which turns out to be an offshoot of her background in theater. While working in theatre in Paris, she decided to study art in Naples and Bruxelles, studying illustration.
Elise believes that art is another way of looking at the world, but in a more sensitive way. Her roots in theater manifest themselves in her work, where her physical approach in painting and drawing are a reflection of her background in buto, dance, and improvisation. A distinct feature of her art is the presence of dramatic characters wearing masks grotesque expressions, often appearing in colorful action poses.
