2017 Festival Artist: Elena Vizerskaya

Elena Vizerskaya ArtworkElena Vizerskaya (aka Kassandra) is a young Ukrainian photo artist. As Elena recalls, her passion for photography and collage creation began spontaneously in childhood and became her necessary path to self-expression and a way to say things that couldn't be said with words.


Collage, photo-manipulation, photo-design are only the technical features of Elena's approach that allow her to create uncommon and often surrealistic worlds perceived by a spectator intuitively, on the emotional level. It is a special space that looks rather like a dream filled with reflections and allusions. A space where many things are meant to be felt, not understood, where you return to again and again.


Elena's works are sometimes compared with those of Dali and Magritte due to the complexity of the artistic figures and a great number of layers of perception, though it is definitely an original artistic language and an absolutely unpredictable different reality.


Elena's art has been used for magazine covers and illustrations, apparel prints and advertising campaigns. It has been exhibited in galleries and won awards. Last year Elena won the Grand Prix of the largest photo-competition in the world – the TRIERENBERG SUPER CIRCUIT 2016 - and was awarded the statuette "Victoria" and 4 Gold Medals (in Self Portrait, Color Ecstasy, Nude sections and Special Best Experimental section of the PSA [Photographic Society of America])- de facto acknowledgement of her as one of the top photo artists in the world.
