Biography

My name is Eli and among artist communities I'm 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. 

In my early twenties, 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.

My artwork and award winning photography are availabe as fine art prints and canvases on Curioos, DeviantArt  YouPic and ViewBug. ​Photoshop styles/text effects can be bought on Gumroad.
