New : a tattoo parlor at Tremplin
Those who know the history of the Tremplin since its beginnings know that our establishment likes to develop its concept while always keeping a touch of craziness! This season’s new trick is no exception to the rule. You have known Le Tremplin as hotel, restaurant, apreski scene … it is now also an artist’s residence! This season, the Tremplin is delighted to welcome within its walls a young artist from Morzine who is both illustrator, painter and above all tattoo artist. Meet Elisa !
It was always about the ink
Elisa is one for whom artistic expression has always been obvious. After training in advertising illustration in Lyon area, Elisa follows the call of her guts and puts down her brushes and her suitcases in Morzine. Since then, artistic projects have followed one another: large-format canvases, murals, special orders from people and businesses … If Elisa’s painting talents hit the mark with her clients, it is above all her mastery of drawing and ink that is the essence of her work. Her works expresses a line, nervous and soft at the same time where one finds graphic codes strongly inspired by comics (in particular Hugo Pratt), Japanese prints and engravings of yesteryear. The work of shadows is particularly remarkable, sometimes suggested by convolutions or on the contrary expressed by dense and distinct areas… or how to explore all the facets of the pen and the inkwell!
The tattoo as a logical continuation
It is therefore not so surprising that for some time Elisa has been willingly swapping her brushes for her tattoo machine. Completely self-taught in this discipline, she quickly acquired a steady line, which in particular gave birth to works in wireframe, demanding and expressive (anatomy, faces, insects …) and a precise and controlled lettering work. Not one to lock herself in a box, Elisa tries her hand at several styles (old school, graphic, black work) with black and white as a common thread. And one must admit that swapping canvasses for skin is working pretty well for her !
[I WANT TO GET A TATTOO] Elisa welcomes you all season long in her tattoo studio located within the Tremplin. Make an appointment for a flash (drawing agreed in advance on catalog) or to discuss a more personal project.
