Elena Bond

 

BIOGRAPHY:

Born in 1965 in Samara, Russia, Elena Bond started drawing at a very early age, using everything from a pencil to her mother's make-up. Her father was a military doctor, but Elena came from a family of artists; her mother was a classical pianist, and her grandfather and great grandfather were both artists in their own right. Because of her father's military work, Elena's family moved frequently around the Soviet Union: she lived in Kazakhstan, Byelorussia, Ukraine, Latvia, Litva, St. Petersburg and Moscow.

At 11, Elena attended her first art school in St. Petersburg, Russia, where she came to the conclusion she could be nothing other than an artist. The students from this particular school spent most of their time at museums such as the Russian Museum and Ermitazh, where they learned not only basic art, but theory as well. Elena's family moved to Middle Asia, which was then part of the Soviet Union, to the beautiful, sunny, and friendly state of Uzbekistan.

When Elena was 15, she attended State college of art in Uzbekistan majoring in Scenic Design which she completed with honors. She then went on to study at the Academy of Art, where she earned a Masters Degree in Fine Art. During this time Elena took part in many international, state and local exhibitions. She became a member of the Artist's Union of Uzbekistan. She also worked in theaters creating set designs for the State Theatre of Opera and Ballet, and the Bolshoi theatre in Moscow. Returning to Uzbekistan, she continued her work in the State Museum of Art as a restorer, teaching at the local University, and participating in exhibitions. In her painting she has tried many styles and techniques from simple still-lifes and portraits to difficult philosophical multi-figured art. Whatever Elena paints, her main goal is to be honest and love what she creates.

Bond currently resides in Miami, Florida, with her husband and two daughters where she paints professionally, and is a scenic designer for the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida.
