Ekaterina Adelskaya (b. Moscow, 1988) is a London based artist working on abstract sculptures and watercolours, mostly revolving around materiality and transformative processes, using both organic and synthetic materials.
After her 2012 graduation from the Russian State University of Cinematography and a number of years spent working in the Russian film industry, Adelskaya has gradually shifted to the art world, earning a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (1st class) at the University of Hertfordshire and relocated to London in 2019.
Her work has been shown in Russia and Asia, amongst them the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art 2019, and the CICA Museum in South Korea, where her work 'Blurring' (2017) has been acquired as part of the CICA Museum’s permanent collection.
Recently Adelskaya’s work 'Letting Go' has won the 2nd Watercolour Prize at the Royal West of England Academy's 168th Annual Exhibition in Bristol. Another work 'Heavy Breathing' is on display at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2020 in London.
