Statement

ELBOW-TOE is a Brooklyn, NY based artist that has been creating introspective urban art for several years. His artwork for the streets is grounded in myth, symbolism and poetry and is primarily executed in woodcut, stencil or large-scale charcoal drawings. His oeuvre is a study of human gesture as communication and he utilizes public spaces as stages for private moments. He is particularly interested in the ability of environmental forces outside his control to create a timeless quality to the work thereby allowing it to feel as if it has been memory and is part of the collective unconscious.

ELBOW-TOE was feature prominently at "Wooster on Spring", a show Roberta Smith of the New York Times listed as one of her top 10 exhibitions of 2006. Since that exhibition ELBOW-TOE has become represented by galleries in London, New York, Denver and Los Angeles.
