Elena Ballarini

Born in Milan, Italy in 1984, Elena Ballarini began to develop her passion for Wildlife Art after attending art school
through her desire to recreate the beauty of nature. Her works, painted entirely by hand using acrylic paint,
are in fact the result of long, meticulous observation. Indeed, drawing inspiration from both reality
and the many photographs she has personally taken, she creates her paintings, each time creating a new composition,
by changing poses, the lighting, inserting or removing elements and finally deciding on which ones to 
emphasise. This is the distinctive characteristic that makes her creations unique.

To achieve these results, she uses a very accurate personal painting technique, recreating,
through numerous thin layers of paint, all the details that, just as in nature, are only visible upon careful inspection.
Through the eyes, heart and hands of the artist, stroke by stroke, the animals portrayed in her paintings come alive,
giving life to works that go beyond photography.

In 2011, the prestigious Canadian "Artists for Conservation" Foundation chose her to become one of their select group of 500 artists from around the world who work for the conservation and protection of species at risk of extinction.

In 2012, she was selected, along with fourteen other international artists, to participate in the "Japan Wildlife Center Wildlife Fine Art Exhibition" at the Machida Museum of Graphic Arts in Tokyo. Since 2012, she has had a permanent exhibition in a gallery in Milan, Italy at Via Madonnina 4, in the Brera district. Her works are very popular and are currently held in private collections in Italy, Switzerland, France, Netherlands, Scotland, Canada, United Arab Emirates and Singapore.​
