Elena Boils (Mexico) Residence: May 2017
Born in Mexico, Elena is an Illustrator and visual artist based in London. She graduated from University college Falmouth in 2012 with a bachelors degree in illustrator and later on from Central Saint Martins with a masters degree in theory and philosophy of Art.
Her work is a mixture of digital and hand created images which explore space as a place where both the observed and the imagined come to be. Colour is a key element to the way in which she creates images as well as the simplicity of arrangement in objects.
For her time in Studio Kura she plans to explore image making by incorporating the subtlety of Japanese design and craft into her work.
