My name is Eli, I'm, however, better known as Eligo. I hold degrees in agriculture and
business administration. Visual arts (i.e. drawing, painting, design)
was a subject of my interest ever since I was a little kid who loved
to scribble with colored pencils and crayons. I have a solid
education background in traditional art, which was provided by the
school system, and advanced training with an artist and teacher.
Photography has become another passion of mine, when I got my very first film camera. It was, however, the approach of digital era, when I decided to work in professional way. I'm specializing in macro, fine art, street and animal photography. Street photography is quite challenging and I like the fact to take unstaged shots during carnival time and at a street parade.
Photo manipulation is a form of visual art that inspires me the most. It allowes me to combine photography, mixied media and digital art to create fantasy, surreal, dark and conceptual compositions.
In 2018, after quite a decade of following the development in the t-shirt design area, I have finally decided to create my own art designs for apparel, home decor and accessoires. The success on RedBubble was unexpected. First, I have gotten a positiv feedback from RB staff and community, that has encouraged me to continue with my work. After couple of months, the first sales have taken place. In 2019 I have opened additional stores on Threadless and Teepublic. In this way the customers are able to find my designs on wider range of products.
