Elan - Transformation

Elan’s work is reminiscent of Contemporary Japanese art, his ink washes  (Sumi-e), reflect the simplicity and importance of empty space central to both art and spirituality. Looking deeper into his work you are faced with the representation of history.

At the core of his paintings is a certain sense of wisdom, a meditative state of self-discovery. It’s a sense of Zen, one Elan would describe as an “Aha Moment, which can often enlighten our journey.”

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Elan came to New Zealand in 1992 and became a New Zealand citizen in 1997. While living in Silicon Valley, CA, Elan had solo shows at The MindCenter in Palo Alto and at the St. Supery Estate Vineyard in Napa, CA. He has also had a solo show at Artbay Gallery in Queenstown, NZ in 2011 and 2020.
