“I live in a different world to most people. A world that is crawling with hidden magic and strange creatures... and always monsters under the bed. From within this world I love to paint, cut, draw, photograph, write, watch, read and most importantly, learn" Eelus

 

Humorous and sinister, beautiful and haunting, a daring mixture of light and dark, Eelus is a mysterious stencil artist. Combining his background in graphic design and illustration with images of science fiction, housing estates, female figures and the bizarre, he is a master of the graffiti art scene.

 

Eelus’ intricate hand-cut stencils are instantly recognisable, with his bold, bright and sharp colours. Inspired by; life, death, love, romance, fantasy, reality, truth and lies, Eelus has exhibited all around the world.

 

Moving to London from his hometown of Wigan, in 2006 Eelus gave up his day job and is now working full time as an artist. He is a believer in art for art’s sake; ‘why do things have to be tied down with the meaning and reason?’ Asked for the defining moment of his career he states ‘I think the real defining moment is yet to come... it’s early days’.

 

With a particular fondness for Star Wars, his subject matter pays homage to classic magazine covers, iconic book titles, comics and drawings. The advantage of street art, Eelus says, is the idea that it can prompt discussion and thinking in someone who wouldn’t normally discuss of think about art.
