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
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.
