About Eleni Pratsi

Eleni Pratsi is a geometric abstract art painter with a strong academic background in fine arts. Eleni’s art practice is identified as Mechanical Art, as the artist uses various unconventional tools, machinery and unique techniques to create her paintings. Her artworks are renowned for their vibrant colour schemes and a dedication to the geometric shape of circle.

Her fascination with the circle has enabled her to master the subject and elevate it to new unexplored artistic territories. Through continuous exploration and the use of non-conventional painting tools, Eleni Pratsi constantly reinvents her artistic practices and visual language. As the circle has no end, so do Eleni’s one-of-a-kind compositions reach the infinite, with no second artwork being the same in her art series.

The artist was born in Nicosia, Cyprus (October 1987), where she currently lives and works. She holds a DNAP, (Diplôme National d’Arts Plastiques), from the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Nîmes, as well as a DNAP and a DNSAP, (Diplôme National Supérieur d’Arts Plastiques), from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Paris, France, obtained with Distinction.
