Eli Tiunine

Eli Tiunine was born in 1957 in Warsaw to a family of painters. Her parents, Konstanty and Władysława Tiunin were frescoe painters, working in many historic buildings and churches. Sadly many of these works have suffered from the destruction caused by World War II. One of their most remarkable restorations have been the Church of St. Anne, located in the historic centre of Warsaw. It is with them that Eli learnt the most of her painting technique.

During the communist era, working for the Church Eli was ostracised, being denied admission several times to the Schools of Fine Arts in Warsaw and Krakow, as she belonged to a family of non-conformists. In 1976 she left Poland for France and was admitted to the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She graduated in 1981.

She has participated in numerous exhibitions in France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Dubai, Australia and the United States.

Eli is actively involved in movement ‘Libellule’, a collective of artists gathered around Lukáš Kándl.

In 2000, at the Carrousel du Louvre, she received the First Prize of Francophone Press in the Exhibition of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts where she became an Associate.

As an admirer of the Old Masters (Van Eyck, the Master of Flémalle, Memling, Van Dyck, Van der Hoch, Van der Weiden, Pieter Breughel), Eli Tiunine began her work through personal research on their techniques – materials, colours, pigments, which allow the development of her own expression.

Eli Tiunine finds inspiration in all of the founding myths of our civilization, while in tune with the realities of our time. Her paintbrush covers mythology, philosophies, Christian iconography, the tragedies, the joys and pleasures of our flesh and our spirit.
