“It’s morning. You sip coffee while scrolling through social media posts. You see exotic places, far away people… And then suddenly, something looks familiar. Yes, it is an image of your neighbourhood; sunshine, tall trees, that interesting building at the corner of the street, the man that looks just like your neighbour walking his dog… This picture makes you feel good. It makes you feel proud of the beautiful place you live in – Winnipeg. You like it and you want to share it with others.”
Elena El is a fine artist specializing in Winnipeg cityscapes. Her preferred medium is acrylic on canvas. Her paintings have been featured on CBC Manitoba Scene, CBC Radio-Canada, Breakfast Television, local magazines and newspapers.
