Elena von Kraskowski
Elena von Kraskowski (born 1966) is a Swedish artist who in limited edition abstract works combines painting, photography and digital editing.

Over the years, she has previously taken courses in both photography and painting, as well as other creative arts. Today, Elena mainly focuses on abstract painting, but also a technique where she works further with her paintings digitally, taking inspiration from both analog photography processes and the new possibilities in digital editing. The basis of her work is experimental exploration – combining thought, intuition, colors, shapes, material and surfaces, to see how all those factors correspond to one another – a form of contained investigatory expressionism. Elena was born and grew up in Stockholm, Sweden, where she resides and works. She has previously held two photo exhibitions of her own, and has also contributed to other exhibitions. Come Winter (2018-19), Elena will put her abstract works on display at Edsvik Konsthall, an art gallery/showroom/museum, with an aim to start working internationally as well.

From childhood, Yongna showed her talent in art and entered art school like a natural procedure. When she was a college student, Yongna had enough desire to create a group of paintings to actively engage in creative activities with my seniors. Her passion for writing stood out, and she took his first step as a writer, starting with “A New Artist’s Invitation.” After that, Yongna came down to Gongju, her hometown, and joined the Gongju Department of the Korean Art Association and started working on writing. Early works were mainly based on ink paintings, and since 2000, the interest in human greed has grown, mainly in expressing in the works the worthless and ruthless desire inherent in human beings. Although the art education business started due to economic circumstances, it continued to carry out art production activities at the same time, though its activities were minimal at one time. After moving to Daejeon, she focused on her artwork again in 2014, winning prizes at various art competitions. It is expanding its activities into various Korean painting fields such as folk painting and coloring.
