Lena is a Russian artist and urban sketcher based in Berlin and Freiburg, Germany. She loves unveiling tales of different cities and their inhabitants by capturing them on paper. Architecture and city silhouettes play a leading role in her drawings; however, she also gets inspired by people around her and the stories of their lives. You can find different series of drawings from European cities like Budapest, Berlin andRome on her website. She recently started a new project called “Berlin Stories” where she portrays the people living in the German capital and illustrates the stories they have to tell.
