Let’s celebrate the spirit of art with one of NYC’s hottest female underground artist, Elena Kariyannis aka “EROCKSNY”.
Elena Kariyannis is a contemporary Greek-American visual artist known in New York City and throughout Europe. Her unique style of painting is expressed powerfully through her art which is mostly done with her fingers. Her art is fueled by everyday life experiences, living in the moment and constantly evolving in life. The vibrant use of her colors evokes an intense energy that naturally captures the viewer and draws them into a world of magic. Her style is fusion abstract, expressionism and pop-art. Colors have become to her an endless limit and no matter how many pieces she produces, each painting has its own story.
She once told me that she is not great with words but would rather show it in her paintings. And let me tell you, the depths of her creative mind is filled with passion and imagination ranging from being impulsive to extreme! One might say, she is sort of a version of Pablo Picasso or Frida Kahlo. But Elena is no one to be compared to. Her style is rather inspired by such amazing artists and she just elevates it into her own magical world.
“Art is everywhere, you just have to open your eyes.” — Elena K.
What’s funny to me is that she considers herself a “Starving Artist”. Although it doesn’t necessarily mean she really is, lol! It simply shows her constant craving and starving in search for different ways to express herself, communicate, and find true-to-life connections.
I guess I should consider myself a “Starving Actress” then. 🙂
Elena’s work has been popping up all over New York City. You may find her symbols along the street walls, clothing apparel, as well as stickers. Make sure to look out for her trademarks such as Mr. Love (mascot) and stickers with messages like “Let’s fall in love” and “Live-Love-Art”.
All of it represents her life, energy, soul and foremostly — LOVE. She wants everyone to know that dreams do come true and most of all, LOVE IS MAGIC!
“I love all kinds of attention, but what I love even more is to spark your attention. Escape with me and let us share the experience together, let me amuse you, overwhelm you and excite you!” — E
Now if that is not some sensual invite, I don’t know what is. You know what they say about Greeks? They are all about love and spreading happiness around the universe! 🙂
Once she starts, she cannot stop! So what are you waiting for guys?
