Elena Kukanova
Well hello, my fellow artists! =)
I'm totally excited for the new (for me) possibility to share some of my artworks through DA website.

A couple words about myself, I'm a professional artist from Moscow, Russia. Recently I started using Internet and got my own website, and I am taking an opportunity to enter the online artists community at DeviantART.

As you can see, I prefer classic style, but not too classic ideas.
Hope you'll enjoy it! =)

Current Residence: Moscow, Russia
Dear friends,

A while ago I have been interviewed by Russian Tolkien themed "House of Melkor" society. I'm totally thrilled, this interview is published at Tumblr, now in English )) <3

Dear Elena Kukanova,

This morning I have received a message from a friend of mine saying: “We're at the airport... Bound to Santorini. I saw a painting by the painter Elena Kukanova... I couldn't help sending it to you... It is you!!!”

I can’t tell you my feeling when I saw it. It is hallucinating. The similarity is perfect. The personality is so me. I have done some research and couldn’t find anything about the story of this painting. None its title. It is “me” dancing in a red/green dress. Please I want to know about it. And I would love to be the owner.
One thing to know about me is that I love art and I have been buying art pieces since 2013. I would like to know more about this painting and this lady. Did you know her ?

Dear Maha Attié,

I'm truly glad that my work could cause such effect! This is the best compliment for the painter! ))

Please mail me at, I'll be glad to provide you with the source images and other details. No, I do not know this lady, I just love the image.

This painting is oil on canvas, and it is for sale.

Kindest regards,
Elena Kukanova

Hello again, though resent to your art I must say that one word is not enough to describe your work. Your art is beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, dramatic, creative, breath taking, heart racing, heart stopping, blood rushing, mind blowing, passionate much life and personality, thought provoking, out of this world, artistic and above all with great talent. I would very much like to see more  Silmarillion  characters like fingolfin and his children, feanor and sons, glorfinde,l my god how has it come that you would forget glorfindel and some second age characters like celebrimbor and gil- galad. Finally the reason I have requested more portraits is I'm a cartoonist and not a great one. I have this fanfic/story in which all the elves are part fairy and I need to draw them in there wings. I print one picture and trace over it, and yet they only slightly resemble there real life counter part. Your most resent aegnor picture is most needed for my work because your work looks as real as a photograph. Do you do requests as well as commissions, I am on a tight budget and can only commission so much. I also need to know how much this will cost me. Please contact me at my page AlexisofRadias or better yet my email, and can i use a credit card instead of pay pal for I don't know how to use it. finally I just love your work and the fact that you respond to your fans. I would love to become your online friend. Please keep the stellar work, and as always much loveHeart  AlexisofRadias Here's a kiss for you, my love!

Astonishing!  Consider my mind officially blown.  What an amazing collection of stellar fantasy paintings!  DanielleIvanova was right about you!  Truly, in your gallery I still can yet see a glimmer of the light of Valinor shining, oh lady both beautiful and wise.
