"Granted a language without a voice; not restrained by the limitations of the voice, - painting is an art form that allows for complete freedom of expression."
Born in 1970 in France, Eliora Bousquet is a professional painter living and working in Paris. She started painting as a child and has through decades of practice specialized in atmospheric, lyrical, symbolical and expressionist abstract art. Eliora has always had a passion for colors and has used them like words to communicate with her canvases. Strangely, it was French, and later English, romantic poetry which drove her to painting and enhanced her fascination with color. The symbolic association of words and colors and the use of metaphors, circumlocutions, and images have always interested Bousquet and this fixation was what convinced her that painting, is not only an art form but a language itself. Granted a language without a voice; not restrained by the limitations of the voice, - painting is an art form that for Eliora allows for complete freedom of expression. Eliora Bousquet has taken part in 111 exhibitions in France, the USA, Canada, Russia, Japan, Souther Korean, Italy, Monaco, the UK, Spain, Germany, Belgium and Portugal and her collection of works, with 5 main series, includes more than 700 original artworks. A self-taught artist, Bousquet recently exhibited at Art Monaco, Red Dot Art Fair in Miami, Toronto Art Expo, Art Expo Milano and Spectrum Art Fair in Miami.
