Elise Blair Bagnoli

Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Painting and Drawing

Elise Blair Bagnoli (b.1998) is an American Italian artist who uses her work as a way to navigate her subconscious. Using atmospheric qualities, she allows mythos and reality to seep into one. Using architecture and abstract portraiture to reference the self, she activates these tools in order to digest the observable world. Elise has spent time researching concepts revolving around philosophy, mythology and therapy based meditation in order to help progress the work and to better understand herself- her artistic and life practices mirror themselves, for the process of making art isn’t one out of pleasure but out of necessity. They make art to survive and understand.
