Elena Shaposhnikova was born in Irkutsk (Russian Federation) in 1990.
She graduated from the Irkutsk State Art College, and in 2013 graduated from the Irkutsk State Technical University at the Faculty of Architecture.
In 2014 she began her study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence at the school of Prof. Adriano Bimbi, and finished in 2018 with top marks.
Her artistic path passes between two worlds: the Siberian reality, with all its radical judgments and the free and comprehensive Italian one. This real duality emerges in works as a form of good and evil. She currently lives and works in Florence.
