About Eleni Pappa Tsantilis

Eleni Pappa Tsantilis is a multidisciplinary artist who has lived between Greece, Switzerland, the Middle East and France where she currently lives. This multicultural experience has greatly influenced her work giving her a unique perspective and a cosmopolitan aesthetic. Trained in ceramics and interior design, Eleni, a passionate self-taught painter, has developed a solid technique that is reflected in her paintings. She describes her work using the terms "gesture, emotion and material", these three words perfectly reflect her artistic approach which emphasizes personal expression, emotional intensity, and the manipulation of different techniques.  She considers every movement of her hand to be charged with emotion and meaning. In his paintings, the gesture is visible in the vigorous brushstrokes and free strokes that create dynamics and vitality in his works. The main sources of inspiration for Eleni are nature, the people she meets, as well as the photos she takes during her travels or near her home, which are an inexhaustible source of inspiration. She uses these to create works where we capture her personal vision of her passion for life and people. Her paintings reflect a free expression, she considers that this is a way for her to translate her deepest emotions and share them with others. What drives her to paint is the desire to express herself, using her technical skills and her intuition, she sets up a dialogue between colors, shapes, and her emotions to create works that convey sensations. and feelings.

Eleni Pappa Tsantilis est une artiste multidisciplinaire qui a vécu entre la Grèce, la Suisse, le Moyen Orient et la France où elle vit actuellement. Cette expérience multiculturelle a influencé son travail lui donnant une perspective unique et une esthétique cosmopolite. Formée en céramique et en design d’intérieur, Eleni, peintre autodidacte passionnée, a développé une technique solide qui se reflète dans ses peintures. « Geste, émotion et matière » sont les trois mots qui reflètent sa démarche artistique. Elle puise son inspiration par la nature, les personnes qu’elle rencontre, ainsi que les photos qu’elle prend durant ses voyages ou près de chez elle. Elle met en place un dialogue entre les couleurs, les formes et ses émotions pour créer des œuvres qui véhiculent des sensations et des sentiments.

Ses sujets de prédilection les paysages et les portraits, essentiellement des femmes. Elle travaille en petites séries de 5 à 10 œuvres.

Selon le sujet du tableau, elle travaille avec de l’huile, l’acrylique, les pastels ou l’encre. En mélangeant, superposant, versant ou incluant des pigments naturels et des éléments organiques come papier, tissus, sable, sciure, ciment, elle obtient de la profondeur et de la complexité.    Pour appliquer la peinture elle utilise des pinceaux, des couteaux à peindre, des éponges, des ustensiles qu’elle-même fabrique, ou directement ses doigts.  

La passion est l’élément clé de la création artistique. Son but est de continuer à travailler avec la même passion qu’elle a toujours eue, en explorant de nouvelles idées et en créant des œuvres qui inspirent les gens et les aident à voir les choses sous un autre angle.

Plusieurs de ses tableaux et sculptures se trouvent dans des collections privées autour du monde.

Elle a participé à plusieurs    expositions   internationales solo ou en groupe ainsi qu’à des expositions virtuelles.
