Elisa Bihan, eccentric artist and emerging artistic director

Elisa is passionate about everything, it has always been her stronger personality trait:Not only for school but also in her personal life. She is very sociable and easy going, which enabled her to strike up interesting contacts for her professional life. She is lively and curious of everything and she loves to come straight to the point.

Her universe is constantly changing. Her world is intended to be fast and rhythmic. It is geometrical, vintage and very contrasted on colors level. She is constantly building her world among her encounters, her wishes, and her feelings. 

To work, she has two ways to proceed.
For the first one, she thinks about the message she wants to communicate, the feeling she wants to convey and the way to transcribe it in a visual way.
The second one is instantaneous, that means her ideas are coming without effort. When she has an idea in her mind, she tries it in several ways until she is happy with the result of her work.
