Elisabeth Lobo was born in Brazil in 1954 and studied Fine Arts at UnB in Brasília, and at FAAP in São Paulo. Amazing is Elisabeth Lobo’s skill to use the needle of an adapted sewing machine, as a painter that moves his frame in short movements around a fixed brush. For one artwork she spends up to one year by cutting fabrics, silk, embroideries, papers, sketching etc.. The raw materials Elisabeth Lobo is transferring to art pieces are often very exclusive. Within the „Master of Paining“ project she catches a dialogue with her personal interventions.
Her “Water Is Alive” project has been initiated to make people aware of the importance of taking care of the water and our planets environment. This giant installation of multiple silk jellyfishes with space-occupying tentacles enchants the space in an aquarium and will be soon shown at the famous Oscar Niemeyer museum in Brazil.
