In 2017 I took part at the Anima Mundi Art Festival / Visions in Venice by Its Liquid. In 2018 my interview was released www.itsliquid.com/interview-ellen-grael.html  More have a look About my work: inspirational Venice
I recently visited Venice for more cultural information and became inspired by the many islands, the floating sea-weeds and the colors of the Lagoon around the city. At my first visit close to the station of Venice I found lines on a wall with marks about the danger of the rising water levels within the coming years. I made a new serie 'The waters of Venice' unaware that this issue was in my subconsiousness.

The artist and the Sounds of Nature, 100 x 140cm                                                           Ellen Grael
I am a Durch artist living and working in Amsterdam. I started drawing at an early age. In my teens I followed private classes with a number of different artists. When I was seventeen, I visited for a study-trip Italy for the first time. Admiring the work of the many Renaissance artists, like Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Del Sarto, Botticelli etc. These famous artists where of great influence in my career later.
The materials I choose are minimal; ink, water, pastels and some acrylic paint. My pastelpaintings ( drawings ) are a mix of Eastern and Western tehiniques with a special pictoresque effect. Since my time at Art school, my affinity is with paper because the specific characteristics of paper I cannot translate to other materials such as linen.
