Italian-French Canadian actor, artist and author Elisabetta Fantone continues to impress with her talent in many mediums; excelling in artistic, film and literary projects. The international beauty is not only a talented actor, widely recognized reality television personality, model and author, but a gifted painter as well. Elisabetta has been garnering attention across North America for her engaging Youtube videos, which capture her creating her dynamic art pieces, from start to first.

Currently, Elisabetta is gearing up for her next show (her first solo show on Canada’s West Coast) at the Kurbatoff Gallery from April 11th-23rd, 2013. Her recreations of the images of iconic figures are widely popular, and are often acknowledged by the subject of her pieces! She was notably commissioned by the Kardashian sisters to showcase a piece of her art in their famed clothing boutique “DASH”, in Miami.
This latest art show comes after Elisabetta’s well-publicized tour of her artwork across North America last year. She had her pieces displayed at the Kurbatoff Gallery, The Thompson Landry Gallery in Toronto during TIFF, the Soho Gallery in Montreal and the Myra Galleries in Miami. Her shows paid homage to classic icons, including Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Audrey Hepburn and Marlon Brando.
Her artistic work isn’t the only aspect of her career on the rise: The vivacious actor is starring in the original feature film “Havana 57”. The noir mystery marks the first co-production between Canada and Cuba, and touched upon the subjects of the mob, revolutions and a beautiful dancer, played by Elisabetta.
“Havana 57” follows Rubén Velez (Juan Reidinger), a newly appointed homicide detective in the Havana police force of the 1950s, before the Cuban revolution. Velez is working on the case of a murdered chorus girl with connections to the mob, but soon finds himself in danger when his idealistic principles of justice meet head-on with the corrupt and brutal practices of the police force. Elisabetta plays Juliana in the film, a torrid Cuban dancer and roommate to the murdered chorus girl. Juliana seduces detective Velez and reveals secrets that lead him to the killer, but also puts herself in the mob’s line of fire. She finds herself torn between her need to survive and her love for Velez.
This multi-talented beauty has been busy with acting roles since she was discovered in 2006 when she won over the hearts of French speaking Canadians thanks to the insatiably popular docu-reality TV series “Loft Story”, of which she quickly shone as the break out star. Since then, Elisabetta has accomplished numerous artistic endeavors, including film and television, modeling, music, painting and literature. She has already released her first book entitled “Journal intime d’une Lofteuse”. Just a few short years later, she had added celebrated pop-art painter and vocalist as additions to her already impressive repertoire.
Elisabetta decided that she would marry her two passions of painting and performing, and head to the U.S. to further both talents. Born in Montreal to Italian parents, Elisabetta grew up with her three older brothers and made the move to Italy at the age of four where she caught the acting bug. Elisabetta, a true animal lover, now lives in Miami with her two small dogs, a Chihuahua named “Dolce” and a Mini-Pin named “Topolina”.
When not gracing the covers of magazines around the globe, doing TV interviews, or working, Elisabetta enjoys reading, working out, playing 80‟s video games and baking. She is also passionate about charity and has been associated with Breast Cancer and Aids charities as well as The Children’s Foundation in Montreal. Elisabetta continues to volunteer her time hosting events, doing commercials and auctioning her paintings to raise awareness and money for charity.
