Born in Russia, Elena Bulatova is an internationally acclaimed artist known for her mixed-media paintings and large-scale installations. She began painting at a young age, and arts were an integral part of her childhood, along with the music. After graduating from Moscow State University with honors and a gold medal in 2006, she was the only Russian student to receive the prestigious Fox fellowship in 2007 to attend Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Bulatova is also a successful gallerist, with her gallery "Elena Bulatova Fine Art" having venues at four locations, in Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Laguna Beach, and Palm Desert. She lives and works in Palm Springs, California.
