  • Elika | Contemporary Artist: Artworks & Biography

Elika

  • France
  • Painter
To succeed, work hard, never give up and above all cherish a magnificent obsession. (Walt Disney)

Elika DESSAPT was born into a family of artists so art was a natural calling. She was actually taught the basics in painting by her artist father, Guy DESSAPT. She did consider becoming a vet for a while until an apprenticeship made her realise it wasn't the right job for her. She returned to her first love: art. She'd loved manga since she was little and produced digital mini comic strips that she posted on platforms and websites alongside her painting.

 

 

Elika's biggest inspiration is her father, Guy DESSAPT. He taught her to paint and how to make a "secret" recipe to prep the canvas for painting to give it the texture all Elika's pieces have. Her mainly landscape paintings are inspired by the world, elements around her or photos her father took. She uses acrylic paint with incredible finesse and precision. The artist wants her pieces to capture how she feels whilst painting: nostalgia, peace and joy.
