Bio

The Fashion Institute of Technology was where he acquired his BFA, and shortly after he dived into the Fine arts field.

Statement

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 in most things I create. I do like the challenge of coming up with ways of story telling through my art, so new and different commissions are always welcomed.



Commission art work:
I do take commission work depending on my schedule, fees are estimated depending on the project. Most of the art work on my site is available for purchase. Inquires can be made to ELSTABO
