My name is Elena Weipert, I was born in 1995 and have finished my communication design bachelor in 2020 at the Folkwang UdK in Essen. I started drawing at a very young age and sticked to it.
My work is often influenced by other art disciplines like dance, music and fashion. I'm also a big fan of speculative fiction! Especially when they question social norms, imagine environmental futures or focus on alternative lifeforms which don’t mess up their planet and society.
