ELSTABO is a product of Brooklyn, New York.
His creative skills have been utilized throughout the Fashions Art Industry, Commercial and in the Fine Arts World.
Since 2002 his work has been exhibited in the United States and Europe with a strong focus on erotica. His work has been published in various prints like Aphrodisia: Art of the Female Form ( Aristata Publishing), and the "The World's Greatest Erotic Art of Today" by Erotic Signature.
He has a B.F.A from the Fashion Institute of Technology and currently teaches art for T.A.H.P. (The Arts of Henson-Parks) Roots and the Brooklyn Library system of New York.
As an artist, balancing myself between a commercial and fine arts seesaw has been my main job. Growing up my influences came from many places, such as cartoons, comic books to graffiti art.
I like working on various jobs from different genres, this keeps my creative juices always working.
Erotica also plays a major role in my art which seems to finds its way into most things I create.
I do like the challenge of telling stories through my art, so new and different commissions are always welcomed.
