Elin Weinstein was born in northern Quebec. At 18, she moved to Montreal to study Anthropology. As a Masters student she conducted fieldwork in Bali; she was drawn to the Balinese concept that some art is alive, the art inspired by the Gods. She places her craft at the juncture between cultural scholarship and living art. Elin respects geometry and admires clean lines, while also having a tendency towards complexity. It is this juxtaposition that produces her fundamental of intricate minimalism.
Japanese street signage and a visit to the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo mixed with her visceral desire to work with exuberant colours inspired her exploration in plexiglass and resin.
Educated at the Visual Arts Centre in Westmount QC, and the Ecole Joaillerie de Montreal, Elin works out of Atelier Artefact in Montreal. She has participated in various exhibitions and craft shows: The Intangibility of Identity (2019) at the EJM,
The Earring Show at the CCBC (2021), Signatures Originals Ottawa Christmas Craft Fair (2021), Metal Alchemy: metal and color (2022) at the Athens Institute of Contemporary Art.
She will be at the upcoming Filberg Festival 2022 in Comox BC in July.
