Kat Elagina was born in Russia, but is currently based out of Miami. She travels around the globe to get new insights and inspirations from different cultures. As a trained philologist and psychologist, she perceives art as a universal language with which to communicate her ideas and feelings. Elagina receives her inspiration in the traditional mythology of various religions as well as in pop-culture, and works to reveal bridges between them. She picks up motives from our everyday life, mostly from social media and from scenes she observes, and redesigns these motives in order to place them on a symbolic level. Her artwork seems to decipher the reality. Discover the unique art and jewelry created by Kat Elagina!
