Eelus‘ solo show, The Colour Out of Space, opened on Thursday night at Blackall Studios in London. It’s a really interesting show. While the images could be hit and miss, what you can’t argue with is Eelu’s technical ability. He’s not one of those lazy “artists” who figure that anybody who can afford a can of spray paint and an exacto-knife should try to cut crappy stencils and sell the resulting canvases for £1000. Eelus’ stencils are flawlessly cut and painted.
There were plenty of prints and originals, but Eelus also painted two large walls in the gallery.
While some of the work was classic Eelus, the best pieces showed a new direction for him. He’s using more color and geometric shapes.
