Digital Art
into new perspectives


 Digital Artist, Video & Photography


Ella Lugin is an upcoming digital artist from Switzerland. Her art is based on 4K video works that can be streamed and sequences from the videos can also be purchased as single images or NFT. Ella is inspired by the energetic structures of matter, which she makes visible in her works. As a basis for her works she films in nature, in cities and water is one of her favorite subjects. The footage is then further processed with digital software. With her poetic view of life she highlights the hidden elements of matter and artistically break up our linear perspective. Ella Lugin’s digital art radiates in aesthetical and contemporary style. Her art is best suited to energize offices, public places, therapy rooms and private spaces. Buy her art on Sedition Art.

Ella Lugin was born in Switzerland. She originally learned classical and modern dance in Germany. Perhaps that's why she has been so intensely involved in creating video art since 2020. Because that is the closest she can get to interpreting the movement element of life. Apart from dance, Ella worked as a painter for fifteen years, with many exhibitions in Switzerland and Germany, until 2000, when she switched to digital photography. With the great possibilities of today's software for film editing, Ella Lugin has created her very unique style. She films the source material herself and edits with various softwares. All creative processes come from her life story and the inspirations that reach her like the air she breathes. Through years of working as a dancer, she learned the pursuit of perfection, which, as we all know, is an utopia, but you can still come close to it from time to time. In 2020, her new artistic chapter began with video art.

​In the videos' ELEMENTS 'OF NATURE' Ella Lugin wants to symbolize the mysterious energy, the code of life, which is inherent in everything, as the source of all being.

In the videos 'URBAN LIFE and POP', Ella Lugin processes her impressions of everyday life, the fascination of cities, architecture and design objects.

The foundation of her art is found through the study and practice of kundalini yoga, pranayama, classical meditation, the mystical philosophies of every religion and culture, Advaita-Vedanta philosophy, tantric spirituality, Buddhist philosophy and quantum physics. 

The main function of philosophy is to tear down false concepts and traditions, through the most accurate investigations of the 'essence of things and their insubstantiality'.

"​My Video Art deals with the visualization of life energy as well as transforming the matter into new perspectives. My art consists of the energetic view of life and things, strongly inspired by quantum physical research results and my meditative practice and exploration. I translate this into video art and out of it I create single images that have a unique statement of their own. My interests lie in the beauty and mysteria which is internalized in every material form. My videos and pictures are to understand as a parable and invite viewers to open themselves to new viewing habits. I describe myself as an artist whose deepest understanding of life is based on cross-border thoughts, examinations and philosophies.

"The new technologies allow me to playfully deal with the abstraction of supposed reality and serve to express my view of the world and society".


BLOSSOMS & BOTANY from 2000-2010

After 15 years of fine art painting, in the year 2000 Ella Lugin began to explore digital photography. Ella places the great variety of botany in the center of her work. Her fine art photography work is designed by careful composition of light. She removes flowers, blossoms and botanics from their natural environment to give them a new interpretation on pure aesthetics and meanings.  Ella creates from blossoms and botanical objects, such as woods, mussels and leaves, portraits of noble beauty and sometimes mysterious aura. Under her gaze, architecturally appealing physiques emerge and surrender their unique beauty. In addition sexual power that creates and and also destroyes life is one of the favorite subjects of  Ella Lugin. Her photo and performing art is characterized by aesthetics and sensuality. Flowers, botany and body as well as the tension between man and woman are in focus of her artistic work.

​The petal of the poppy plant unfolds a centered lightness in the work 'Mandala', with leaves that move around the middle like waving silk. In the work 'Animus', the 'concentrated masculinity' of the anthurium blossom, literally appears. Or 'Elevin', a delicate interpretation of the dahlia, reminiscent of the energy of a ballet dancer. The dried-up leaf of a tree not named by the artist from Costa Rica works like a wave that dissolves in spray. Woods, shells, blossoms, leaves, any natural elements that can be isolated, attracts the attention of Ella.  Often she finds her objects at the edge of a road. These objects are tiny and easily overlooked by walking by. By focusing on them, they are raised into immediate tangibility.
