English-born Eelus left his hometown and moved to London in 2000. At that time, artists like Banksy and Ben Eine already had a major artistic presence and street art began to gain a foothold in the greatest galleries. When the workshop Pictures on Walls gave Eelus the opportunity to promote his first graphic work, it was sold almost immediately, allowing the artist to quit his job and concentrate on his artistic creations professionally. Finding inspiration in the culture of cinema and literature Eelus is now experimenting with new means of creation between sculpture and painting based on layers of paper, in addition to his limited edition prints and large graffiti murals.
Eelus has exhibited in many American and European galleries alongside other urban artists such as Faile, Nick Walker, Banksy, Ben Eine, D-Face or Shepard Fairey.
