Elisa Vendramin

Graphic designer and Illustrator

Milano, Italy
Elisa Vendramin is an Italian designer and artist based between Reykjavik and Milano. She plays with abstraction in digital drawings, exploring the delicate balance between full and empty, aiming to capture those moods, atmospheres or emotions that are often hard to describe by words or by figurative illustration. Therefore she often refers to her practice as "visual poetry".
