Elle Nicolai Online Art Listing
Elle Nicolaļ is a California transcendental artist, and philanthropist, dedicated to creative projects in visual arts, and to philanthropic activities in healing, art and consciousness.
Born in France, she displayed a keen attraction to indigenous, tribal, shamanic cultures, and energy healing from an early age. She has lived in California all of her adult life, where she continues her interest in Native American, African, Tibetan, Hindu, Balinese, Aboriginal, as well as Japanese & Chinese cultures.
Her predilection for such philosophies, their indigenous sound & music, and natural health & healing methodologies, permeates her work as an artist.
Some of her travels have brought her to rainforest villages of the Ihla Grande archipelago in Brazil, to indio families on the Bocas del Toro islands off the coast of Panama, and to interior lands of Bali. She practices Level II Reiki energy healing. Elle Nicolaļ has been exhibited at galleries throughout North America, from Los Angeles, and Northern California to New York and Boston, from Florida to Canada.
She creates original paintings on canvas, digital photography, ink & pencil drawings on paper, and mixed media work. In the tradition of the Transcendental Painting Group (Raymond Jonson, Emil Bisttram, etc.), the Pacific Northwest Visionary Art School (Morris Graves), and such spiritual artists as David Chethlahe Paladin, she translates what is seen through the Inner Eye, by taking dream-images and meditational-glyphs, then placing them in our 3-dimensional reality, for us to see.
The nature of her meditation and dream 'process' as an artist, and the content her symbolic images, has helped categorize her style in such closely related genres of visual art as visionary art, spiritual art, transpersonal art, integral art, esoteric art, healing art, shamanic art, tribal art, symbolic art, meditative art, and contemplative art.
