Elkin is a contemporary figurative painter working in the realist tradition. His motivation as a painter is capturing light, and it's universal and timeless influence on life, art and culture. Finding beauty even in the most simple objects, comunicating his observations of nature, and using time-tested methods of the Old Masters are the keys to Elkin's visual language. Looking for a deeper understanding of those methods, he moved to Florence-Italy, where he became part of an art comunity called The Artspace Florence. There he had the opportunity to learn first hand from great painters such as Angel Ramiro Sanchez and Hunter Eddy.

Elkin has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States, Italy, Spain, China, Colombia and Venezuela. He states: "I want to celebrate life through my painting. I want my work to be contemporary but plenty of timeless beauty."

Carlos studied at The Florence Academy of Art from 2007 to 2010, where he mastered his drawing and painting techniques. In his final year of study, he worked as an assistant professor of drawing to Simona Dolci, Director of Intensive Drawing. Immediately after his graduation, he remained in Florence where he continued his training in painting under the direction of Ángel Ramiro Sánchez, a Venezuelan Realist painter and Director of Advanced Painting at The Florence Academy of Art. Ramiro Sanchez said “I have always found that Carlos captures the essence of his subject, their humanity and soul. His fine technique and bravura are at the service of his art.”

He draws his inspiration from capturing the essence of the models that are in front of him, whether they are people, spaces or objects. The objective is always to convey their emotions.
