Elisa Carutti

Surrealism

February 5, 2021

Elisa Carutti is an Italian contemporary artist whose paintings are inspired by things we can’t prove whether they exist or not, such as faint in God or the celestial phenomenon. She is attracted to astronomical images, always having them in mind while she paints. Most recently, she introduced the human figure to her work, placing it in the sky without representing it entirely. “It’s always a fragment of a face, a single arm or a hand, as I want to paint like things happen in a dream without a logic link, pieces of different scenarios happening all at the same time without a chronological order.” She studied Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, earning her BA in 2014. After that, she continued her studies at Slade School of Fine Arts, UCL, London, completing her MFA in 2018. Elisa Carutti lives and works in Milan.
