About Elisaveta Sivas

Elisaveta Sivas's art expresses the most sincere and deep feelings felt by humans. Having her background in linguistic research, Elisaveta became a researcher of life, of human emotions, interactions, relations.

Elisaveta Sivas’s oil paintings reproduce a color tonality of magical interpretation of figure and space. Her paintings do continue her sculptures. The figures are painted gently and space is left to the imagination of the spectator.

She taught and did research at the University of Cyprus. She studied fashion and theatrical costume at the Art Future School in St. Petersburg.
