Elsa Egon is a pseudonym. I grew up in Naples (b.1981). After graduating in architecture, I've moved to France.
Self-taught artist, I used to work with different materials and technics. During the Covid crises, I've started to make portraits. These are oil on canvas painting.
After a first solo exhibition in Naples in 2008, I was a finalist of the 2017 award 44 ideas for viadellafucina16 by a committee of scientists and also one of 40 finalists for the Art Prize CBM Premio Carlo Bonatto Minella Forme e materia dell'attesa, which led to an exhibition in Turin and then at Galerie Českých centre, Prague in 2018. The online curator, Madja Edelstein-Gomez, has selected my work for Les Recombinants Exposition International d'art presented for the first time at Art O Rama in 2017.I continue to show my art by participating in calls for applications, exhibitions like Paratissima 15 Multiversity in Turin, Salon d'Automne in Paris, and ITSLIQUID International Art Fair 2020 in Venice. My latest works have been published in Artist Talk Magazine in Issue 14 and 15!
I've won the Collector's Vision International Art Award by Contemporary Art Curator Magazine in May 2021!!!
