Yelena Safronova received a BFA in Book Illustration at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York in 2006. She's been working in graphic design and illustration ever since, and recently started participating in fine art exhibitions. "The vibrant, diverse, creative crowds of New York are a bottomless well of inspiration for me. In my work, I observe people in their daily lives, catching them off-guard in candid moments, observing many emotional moments and contrasts." Safronova has participated in the Light and Colour exhibition organized by Cylinder Gallery in London in 2018; Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club’s annual open exhibition in 2019; and Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Collective’s Wide Open exhibition this summer. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
