Yelena Popova (RUS,UK) Artist
Yelena Popova (b. 1978, Urals, USSR) lives and works in Nottingham. She studied at Moscow Art Theatre School and Byam Shaw at Central St Martins before graduating from MA Painting at the Royal College of Art in July 2011.
Popova is an artist who works across a wide range of media, including painting, video and installation. Reflecting her upbringing in the Urals, she is influenced by the tenets of Russian Constructivism, while often seeking to discuss the constant development of industrialism and the landscape of contemporary Capitalism. There is an important stress placed upon the theme of balance within her work, whether this is political, aesthetic or metaphysical.
Yelena Popova's work is in several international collections including Government Art Collection, Arts Council Collection, Nottingham Castle collection, New Hall Art Collection Cambridge, Cambridge University collection, Meta Collection, Saatchi Collection, Zabludowicz Collection, and museum in Münster
