Elin Elfström

Elin is mesmerized by the gossip mags

"You want a piece of me?"

The product of her generation, Elin is mesmerized by the glossy gossip tabloids, wherein the least flattering image has the highest value and where private tragedy becomes public Saturday candy. Born in 1981, Elin lives and works in Stockholm where she studies and dissects paparazzi images to create something new and original. With an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts, Umeå, Elin’s paintings captures what the tabloid lens doesn’t see - the fragile humanity of the subjects.
