Born in the city formerly known as Stalingrad (now Volgograd), Elena Kourenkova is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist. She originally studied architecture and practiced it for some years in Moscow, before moving to Glasgow in the 1990's. She gets inspiration for her art from her own personal experiences and observations, making the people and situations depicted feel familiar and authentic. Much of her work is humorous and lighthearted without venturing into parody. She enjoys dancing (mostly rockabilly, jive, and swing) and its influence shows in her work.
She describes growing up under Soviet rule and yearning for an escape through liberated self-expression. This is what she has found in her art. She always seeks to convey the lighter, funnier, and happier aspects of everyday life which has made her work incredibly popular in all countries. Her work hangs in public, private, and corporate collections throughout the world including the United Kingdom, Russia, Australia, and Sweden.
Awesome site that allows you to choose your rooms paint color and then displays the painting on that wall. Brings the painting you choose into perspective. I love this feature!
So happy with my purchase! It looks great, came very quickly and without any issue. Very happy with my first purchase from Overstock Art!
I ordered The Kiss for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The Luxury Line version on this painting has the additional textures and depth which really bring this painting to life. The website recommended frames that would match the painting and their choice was spot on. Very happy with my purchase!
Dance at Bougival is one of my favorite Renoir paintings. I had a cheap print but this one on canvas gives me so much joy. I just love it!
