Artist of the moment………Eelus

 

Eelus is fantastic street artist based out of the United Kingdom. Eelus works in many mediums and is best known for the art of paper cutting, working with stencils, printmaking, and collage. Eelus was born in Wigan, a part of Greater Manchester, England in the year 1979.

He moved to London and became successful after his work was recognized by street artist legend Banksy and another street artist named Eine.

In this clip we visit the studio of Eelus and watch him work on creating some stencils:

Although the artist is capable of working in many mediums I am most impressed by his paper collage. His work with the figure and face using collage is hardly matched in the art world as far as realism and capturing a likeness.

For inspiration the artist often works with subjects he enjoys which include science fiction, women, and pop culture movies such as Star Wars.

Price range information: Prints range from 100 euros to 2000 euros. Original acrylic paintings can reach 5,000 euros.

    Reminds me of Rilke’s poem “Eine Sibylle” (http://rainer-maria-rilke.de/090014einesibylle.html). Sorry, I cannot translate that into English and I don’t know it that poem has been translated into English.
