Evan Loberbaum is a visual artist who paints under the moniker ELO. ELO’s style and artistic vision is influenced by street art and graffiti, as well as the Abstract Expressionism. Inspired by modern day visual and music artists such as Jay Z, Shepard Fairey, Marc Ecko, KAWS and Pharrell, among others, Loberbaum is establishing his own personal brand while blending the lines between art, fashion and merchandising. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and galleries in New York City. ELO was selected as one of the 20 New York regional semi-finalists in the 2014 Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series. In early 2016 he was awarded a two-month solo exhibition at the prestigious Citigroup Center, which was co-sponsored by real estate investment trust Boston Properties and the Midtowns Arts Common. ELO was also recently selected as a participating artist in Sing for Hope's annual public art project, in which he designed a custom piano that would later be donated to a local New York City school.
