Eelus, the contemporary urban master, joined the street art inspired movement #DubaiWalls.
Wigan born Eelus entered the world of street art a few years after moving to London in 2000. He was almost instantly snatched up by master printmakers Pictures On Walls after street legends Banksy and Eine noticed his work on the grimy walls of East London. His first ever screen print edition in 2006 sold out almost instantly (temporarily knocking raining champion Banksy off the top spot for the fastest selling print award) and pretty soon he was finally in a position where he could leave his day job behind and attempt to live his lifelong dream of turning his art into a full time profession.
He has since exhibited worldwide alongside some of the scenes best contemporary urban masters including Shephard Fairey, Banksy, Eine, D-Face, Nick Walker, and Faile, as well having a number of successful sell-out solo shows both in the UK and USA. His work has become highly sought after over the last 10 years as collectors and celebrities alike help his releases sell out in minutes and his original work disappear as soon as the paint dries.
He’s painted walls across the UK, USA, Japan, Norway, The Gambia and Dubai and most recently installed a permanent mural in the celebrity studded NYC restaurant VANDAL alongside a handful of other artists such as Hush, Shepard Fairey, Tristan Eaton and Vhils.
Eelus is currently working towards his next solo exhibition with Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco which opens June 30th.
