Ivanka Eldé is a portrait and fine artist based in France. Her main painting medium is oil paint and soft pastel. Ivana’s work refers mostly to anthropocentric themes rendered through personal colour palette and idioms. She claims that the process of painting each piece of art holds a unique storyline, being set in a microcosmic universe that is stitched together with philosophic strings. She wants to display the importance of self-knowledge, which can be acquired through adventure and exploration. Another subject is freedom and intimacy, which are the provenance of mental health and so civilized society.
