Who is Elo Marc?
I like to call myself a creative person with an edge and no limits. I love design, typography, colors and textures. I'm always on the move trying new things and exploring new horizons. As an artist, the collage world has always been part of my life. When I was a kid, I though school books where very boring and I used to draw on top of the illustrations to make them more interesting. I would also create conversations between characters to make them more live and funny. I’m a Graphic Designer, an Illustrator, a Fashion Designer and a Chef... And in case you wonder, I master all the fields pretty well.
Can you explain your style of art?
My digital collages are an influence of everything I have seen out there: The new and the old, the present and the past, vintage images, textures and lots of bright colors. Most of my work represent me somehow. They are past dreams that I had or just ideas that clicked into my head. I believe colors can bring illustrations to a whole different level of interest and also cause different reactions in different people. I love working with colors and apparently I know to combine them well.
There are tons of collage artists out there, but I wanted my work and style to be easily recognized by my audience. Creating collections make them look unique and more iconic. It’s like creating a clothing collection. Some stores will have access to some and some other stores want to be more selective and will have access to others.
