Curious – A new exhibit by Eelus.
Eelus lives in a very different world to most people; a world that is crawling with hidden magic and strange creatures. There are dinosaurs and strange beasts within the center of the Earth, Bigfoot is alive and well within the forests of many lands and the skies are full of beings from other worlds. There are gnomes in the mountains, secret bunkers in the desert, and always, ALWAYS monsters under the bed.
From within this world Eelus has carved a name for himself over the last ten years as one of the UK’s top graphic artists. He’s painted and exhibited around the world alongside some of the best contemporary and urban masters such as Banksy, D*Face, Eine, Tim Biskup and Shepard Fairey as well as having a number of highly successful solo shows in the U.K and U.S.
The curiosity cabinets of the 16th century onward were the starting point for Eelus’s inspiration for ‘Curious’. Within these strange collections you would find fantastic specimens from the natural world, fascinating studies on the human body, paintings and pictures from around the globe and even objects of great mystery and wonder that can’t be explained by science at all. For the first time in his artistic career, Eelus has moved away from his trademark medium of stencils to create a brand new body of work made entirely from hand cut paper, all of which fall within the categories usually found inside the cabinets of wonder.
Through ‘Curious’, Eelus is introducing us to the start of not only a new medium for him, but a new visual style. The fun he’s had making the work is obvious, he just hopes you enjoy it as much as he does.
Join us on June 1st starting at 6pm for the unveiling of Curious .
