Laura Eliason is a Brooklyn-based multi-media artist whose work engages with themes of visual storytelling, philosophy, and the blurred lines between material and virtual experience.
Her work has been commissioned throughout the USA, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Canada, and Brazil. Her recent projects have been shown in a number of solo and group exhibits hosted by the Workshop Gallery Artist's Foundation, Lector Artist Residency, Spoke Art NYC, Chashama and Rekover Projects in New York. Laura is the recipient of the Dolores Quinn award from Drexel University, was a finalist in Irish Fashion Innovation Awards, and as a teenager, was chosen for a special exhibition at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts.
Forthcoming projects include an illustrated book on Philosophy by Oxford University Press.
