“Transformation has always driven my work.
My art has evolved to my emotions, it is essential and it is healing.
I see the purity of the soul surrounded by the different roads it can take.
Our body is the shell that keeps our heART alive and we are here on this eARTh for a certain time."
Elisabet González is an internationally recognized artist professionally known as “Artista Elisabet”. She is the child of Spanish parents and was born and raised in Germany. She spent her childhood and early professional life in Germany working in law enforcement and as a professional flamenco dancer, extensively traveling throughout Europe. The experiences of dance and her criminal justice work bring unique influences on her art and life with seriousness and healing. The joyful freedom she finds in her dance and music rhythms are expressed in the brushstrokes of her creations.
Gifted with a diverse cultural identity and skillset, she brings a unique perspective to the art community. Her work reveals a contemporary fusion of an eclectic, abstract and kaleidoscopic world. She found her unique artistic expressions through the “Power of Color”.
Artista Elisabet concentrates on creating artistic expressions such as paintings, photography, sculptures, and life figure castings. The art incorporates handcrafts on diverse media including canvas, wood, and recycled materials. When working with such materials that have gone through a distinct “life cycle” and already have a story, Elisabet adds another layer of symbolic meaning when she integrates them into her pieces.
By incorporating stones, gems, crystals into her work, she hopes to bring joy and healing to others' lives and to assist people in connecting with the divine. Each painting is then infused with essential oils and cleansed with sage. Additional interests include creative development in photography, public relations, marketing and production. She has significantly contributed her art to numerous philanthropic activities and her work is loved by many in our city of Houston.
As her creativity has matured, its manifestations have taken on forms that are more ethereal. The human figure often serves as a canvas to create a mold of the body, which is a daunting and difficult task. Through the creation of a one-of-a-kind sculpture, the qualities of resilience, beauty, strength, vulnerability, and courage are immortalized to appreciate the innate and essential beauty of life. She uses the movement and fluidity of the human body to express an idea and the energies and vision she receives from her models are incorporated into the design.
Since discovering that there are no limits to creativity, she finds it limiting to confine her
creative vision to a single artistic style and therefore has created multiple collections that all seem to
have their own unique flare.
The White House of The United States recognized Elisabet in 2016 for her art project "I Cast 2 Empower", an initiative dedicated to raising awareness, supporting, empowering, and inspiring breast cancer survivors, and in 2018 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award. Her work has been exhibited in the Museum of Louvre in Paris, Art Basel Miami and Times Square in New York.
