“Beauty always offers its own form of seduction” – Elizabeth George

My name is Elena Zolotnitsky and I live and paint in Oakland, CA. I was born in Moscow in 1961 and graduated from Moscow Cinema Academy in 1986 with an MA in Fine Art and Animation. Until 1989, when I immigrated from Russia, I worked as a creative director in animation production, a freelance illustrator, and a poster designer. I also started my career as a painter.

Over the past 25 years, I have been recognized by major American art institutions like Communication Arts, American Society of Publication Design, and Society of Illustrators. My art has appeared on the cover of New York Times Book Review, 7×7 San Francisco Magazine, Baltimore Magazine, American Art Collector, and numerous editorial publications across America and in Russia.

I have been awarded residencies and fellowships in America and Europe and granted Awards of Excellence and the title, “Best in the the Show,” from numerous juried competitions.

I am represented by Pryor Fine Art in Atlanta, Selby Fleetwood Gallery in Santa Fe, Andra Norris Gallery in Burlingame, Paul Mahder Gallery in Healdsburg, and SFMOMA Artists Gallery in San Francisco. I am a very versatile painter and a true believer that ART transforms us not with what it contains, but with what it creates in us––the constellation of interpretations, revelations, and emotional truths. My major inspiration is the painting practice itself and risk-experiment as a considerable part of the joy of doing.
