"This edition is a very simple image that needs little explanation really. It
depicts a young boy tethered to an oversized balloon, but he stands firm
and his feet are rooted to the ground. I guess its message is to keep
your dreams big, play big, love big, but stay grounded.
I have a huge collection of reference photos, mainly vintage family
photos that I find fascinating. Very often I find an image that
instantly just sparks an idea, it’s very similar to collage, I see one
thing, take it, and add to it, creating something new.
This print is a smile for the mind, it’s a simple image with a
simple positive message. Sometimes that’s all you need to bring a bit of
happiness into your day." - Eelus
Balancing the opposing forces of the humorous and macabre, vivid color and stark monochrome, Eelus’ work brings the beautiful and sometimes caustic realities of the world together.
His central stark figures – often melancholic women – are limned in a riotous display of joyous color, suggesting the entanglement and necessity of light and dark.
Drawing inspiration from pop culture, film, graphic design and art history, his paintings, murals, and screen prints continue to play and provoke.
Eelus has exhibited and painted extensively around the globe alongside the very top names in the contemporary street and urban art scene.
He currently lives in Brighton, UK.
