HAJIMEMASHITE,

I’m Elena Galofaro known as Elena Bansh because my surname is too hard to spell, and I’m an illustrator and concept artist from Italy but currently based in London.

I’ve graduated from the National Film School of Cinema (CSC) in Turin, where I’ve learned how to 2D animate and doodle characters. Currently I’m studying at the Royal College of Art, where I’m doing a Master in Visual Communication.

About me I can say that I’ve a strong passion for Asia, in particular Japan, a country where I lived for almost two years.
If Japan inspires 50% of my artworks, the other half is surely inspired by the natural world and human’s interaction with the wilderness.

Please feel free to contact me for any inquires!

YOROSHIKU ONEGAISHIMASU.
