Elaina Sullivan is a Georgia native, holding both a BFA in Interior Design and BBA in Marketing from The University of Georgia. Sullivan is a self-taught visual artist, spending years carefully dissecting old master and impressionist paintings. She is constantly exploring art historical movements and allowing them to fuel her contemporary aesthetic. Most recently, Sullivan has taken inspiration from graffiti and street art. The crispness juxtaposed with the inherent drips and overspray of aerosol painting have influenced Sullivan to create her own works in a similar vein. Likening a spray paint close-up, these paintings capture the immediacy of graffiti while preserving a thoughtfully ethereal quality.
Elaina Sullivan currently lives and works in New York City.
