The renowned multifaceted performer is tackling her most important project yet, with the anticipation of her first child in July.
The ever engaging artist/actor Elisabetta Fantone has been garnering acclaim worldwide from her various art, film and television projects. Now, Elisabetta is preparing for the most important role she has tacked to-date, as she prepares for the arrival of her first child in July. Elisabetta’s work was most recently featured in her GOING POP exhibit, which was displayed at the Lacey Contemporary Gallery in London earlier this spring. This latest show comes on the heels of a well-publicized tour of her artwork across North America, with highlights including The Thompson Landry Gallery in Toronto during TIFF, Calvin Charles Gallery in Scottsdale, Latitude Gallery in Calgary, and the Myra Galleries in Miami.
Elisabetta’s art reached new heights, literally, with one of her largest creations; a mural she painted for Art Basel in Miami. The piece, titled ‘Crimes Against Art’ features the portraits of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol posing for their fictional mugshots. The mural is located at 227 NW 26th Street in Miami (Wynwood). Last year, Elisabetta painted the widely revered mural titled ‘The Affair”, featuring the portraits of the Kennedys and Marilyn Monroe. ‘The Affair’ was later featured in a Bacardi commercial.

Elisabetta’s unique approach to recreating images of iconic figures is widely popular, and the portraits are often acknowledged by the subject of her pieces!
The Italian-Canadian multi-talent has accomplished countless artistic endeavors, including notable credits in the realm of film and television, modeling, music, painting and literature. A highlight of her productions include: the role of Marta in the Golden Globe Award winning film “Big Eyes” directed by Tim Burton, the noir-mystery feature “Havana 57”, and a lead role in the feature “My Name is Sandy”, which screened at the Cannes Film Festival. And, of course, the role that changed it all for Elisabetta, the Canadian TV series “Loft Story”, which gained her notoriety as a break out star in front of the camera. Since then, her remarkable versatility as an actor has allowed her to successfully play roles ranging from light comedy to gritty drama in both English and French productions.
When not on set, or writing (her first book, entitled “Journal intime d’une Lofteuse” and the accompanying CD were recently released), she is giving her followers a peek at how she makes her art with time-lapse videos demonstrating the creative process that goes into the creation of her innovative pieces. You can see her videos on YouTube on her channel:OfficialElisabetta.
With her acting projects on the continual rise, and a painting career that is more in-demand than ever, with pieces in galleries and private collections across the world, Elisabetta isn’t slowing down anytime soon. And, with the addition of a new role this summer, Elisabetta will be tackling her greatest personal project: motherhood. The healthy living enthusiast is planning on having a natural water birth, and is preparing for the natural birth with a hypnobirthing class next month. She has continued with a well-balanced plant based diet throughout her pregnancy (not always easy when around a tempting craft services table!), and her and her husband plan on raising their child has a vegetarian as well.
Elisabetta has balanced her pregnancy, mind and body wellness, and a busy art and film production schedule, while continuing to impress those around her in all facets of work and life.
