Contemporary (Canada)

Contemporary artist Elena Myasnikova lives and works in Calgary, AB (Canada). Myasnikova started her artistic journey in her late teens with a formal art education in Russia. She holds a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Russia) and obtained a Fashion Design diploma in Toronto (Canada), after her immigration.

Initially, her art studies focused primarily on stage and theatre costume design. But fine art always played an important role in Elena’s life, and she mastered different painting and graphic techniques over time. A professional artist now, Elena expresses herself through mostly abstract contemporary artwork.


Nature itself is my inspiration, it provides the feathers to my artist’s wings.

I like to transfer my observations onto the canvas, capturing a shape or a sound in my artwork. Like the rock-like shapes under your feet, created by the shadows of tree canopies. Or that whooshing, comforting sound of geese wings passing-by above.

Communicating that moment, where time stood still, and I experienced something simple, yet so moving.

Technique and inspiration

Living and working in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains, beauty and pure magic surrounds Elena Myasnikova every day. Hence it is of no surprise she considers nature to be her main source of inspiration.

Highly detailed, with lavish embellishments, Elena likes to be in control of the outcome of the process. She knows where the work is going and her palette is carefully chosen. Deliberate in every phase of the artwork coming to completion, she envisions her work already in an art collector’s interior. It is Elena’s intention to add beauty and tranquillity to your home or office space.
