Received Global Child Prodigy award for her unique style of Art. What's it about ?
When you look at her artwork, you feel as if you have stepped into a dreamland. A child's sophisticated thought drives you towards her matured work. "What an amazing creativity!", Your heart involuntarily echoes. I am not telling you anything from a fairytale book. This is the story of Elisabeth Anisimow, the young painter who won the Global Child Prodigy Award for the year 2020.
Artist as A Child:
Elisabeth Anisimow was born in Los Angeles and her parents are Russians. Her interest in art was displayed at a very young age. Elizabeth's mother used to take Elisabeth and her elder brother to the St. Petersburg museums and there, little Elisabeth spent hours gazing at the art.
When she was just two years old, Elisabeth started painting. Slowly, by the age of seven, her watercolour paintings showed the world her distinctive flair for art. When she was 9, she drew inspiration from Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet leading herself towards creating her own style by integrating the painting on live models.
At the age of nine, Anisimow got inspiration from the works of Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet. Her signature style is to integrate painting on live models into a painted environment created by her. Elisabeth’s masterpieces feature actual living, breathing people!
An Emerging Artist:
13-year-old Elisabeth has been selling her artwork since she was seven and makes more than HK$310,000 annually. She did Live painting sessions for a week at the K11 Museum mall in Tsim Sha Tsui. Her first installation, the “living art” installation, titled Christmas Muse Garden, was in Asia.
Her works were kept on the display in the Museum of Children’s Art in Oslo, Norway. What started with watercolours switched to oils and then to acrylic. Inspired by French tableau vivant, static scenes and Renaissance masters, Elisabeth started recreating the paintings of old masters like Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoi. She is currently doing contemporary works. She also has been experimenting with various techniques like making paper dresses and then going on to paint them. For her amazing artistic ability, she is nicknamed as Kid-casso but she says that she doesn't like labels.
“I wake up at 7 am, do homework, and paint for the rest of the day, for about five hours on average,” she says. “I don’t think I’m a prodigy – I’m just pursuing my dreams,” she says.
"Living art” which Elisabeth has immersed herself into says that it is truly interesting and amazing. She says that it requires a lot of effort and creativity. Elisabeth not only paints but also designs costumes, creates setups, collects the props and finally paints the humans and directs them into the scene. Her paintings, she says, is both creative and educational. To keep getting new ideas and to keep the flow of work going, she says is challenging.
Painting clothes are not easy. You need to know which fabric to use and how it absorbs paint. I actually do learn a lot through the process and always discover something new for myself, She says.
Elisabeth says that she finds painting on humans really interesting. Every time you get to paint on a new face, she says it's like painting on a new canvas.

What I do is like a visual performance art so I would perform everywhere where people would like to see it, She says that she likes to paint Ellen and Taylor Swift.
Advise In Her Words:
"Never stop dreaming and always follow your dream. Paint with your heart and don’t listen if someone says that it is not good enough. Whatever you create will be always beautiful. Just believe in yourself and in your work!" Elisabeth concludes.
