I make art for brainy people.
I paint all my life. This is my way to communicate with the world (http://www.saatchionline.com/elishevanesis)

I studied fine art in Russia (Stavropol Art School) and Israel (Betsalel Academy of Fine Arts). I got M.A. Degree in writing in Moscow Literature Institute and D.M. Degree, as well as postgraduate course in psychiatry in Stavropol Medical Academy.

Instead of proper autobiography I prefer to let you know 10 facts about me. At least 9 of them are true :)

1. I was a psychiatrist. The problem is that I finished my psychiatric practice many years ago, but still arrive at diagnosis.

2. I'm an author of 10 books (fiction and poetry). The problem is that all of them are in Russian and only one is translated to English.

3. I'm a full time artist for last 12 years. More than 300 of my original artworks are in private collections and museums in 15 countries. The problem is that now I want some of them back.

4. I have a beautiful old Himalayan cat. The problem is that veterinarians don't accept paintings or drawings instead of money.

5. I live 2 miles from the center of the Universe. The problem is that you can't hide yourself from God here.

6. During 5 years I was a cat. The problem is to be a Human being now.

7. My son is a musician and my husband is a writer. I guess there is no need to explain what is the problem here.

8. I'm a senior lieutenant. The problem is that this army and even the state don't exist any more.

9. I get from 5 to10 injections and few pills every day. No problem.

10. I hate lies. This is a big problem.
