Read about Elena Rato
Elena Rato uses a combination of different materials and media to create works that appear to take over their surroundings. Rato studied visual arts and later decided to incorporate graphic design into her practice. Her most renowned work is her pieces where black maranas (webs) seem to be splattered all over her paintings and onto the walls or spaces where they are installed. These are designed digitally and then are printed out in adhesive vinyl to be added to her paintings. By doing this, the painting is not bound to its canvas, stretchers, or frame, but flows freely as to symbolize Elena Rato’s creative fluidity and how her work keeps on growing both aesthetically and conceptually.
