013-EN - Interview with Elena Russu
Elena started a very interesting concept with her friend Svetlana: Sketch and Brunch - a Sunday meeting in a London café with various artists. And it's thanks to an online session with this group that I realized that I am better at listening and I am less nervous when I paint and talk and I had a vision of the last version of the concept of my podcast (because I have been thinking about making a podcast for more than a year, but I kept changing ideas in my head).
Since I met Elena online, she has been a great support for me: she always listens to my podcasts, but first and foremost she is very knowledgeable. As an artist herself, she has a keen interest in anything related to art: from techniques, materials, styles, artists, history, museums, movies etc.
Her background is in architecture so she can tell you a lot about that as well!
This episode is around art as you can imagine, we touched on various subjects like: pigments, the importance of art, modern art (which I sometimes don't understand haha), what is it like working as an architect in London and many other things, all of this while laughing our heads off!
