DESCRIPTION

Brooklynite Gallery proudly presents, "Paradise Lost" a solo show from EELUS.

On the heels of his high impact solo exhibition in London last February, UK
artist Eelus has officially arrived on the scene with an unusual set of tricks up
his sleeve. Toying with the future expectations of adolescence, while juxtaposing
sci-fi, sexual tension and poignant text, his imagery is reminiscent of a bizarre
dream you wake up from and struggle to find it's meaning. Eelus' work often feels
like a still frame from a complex film that points us in the right direction, yet
still manages to give us only enough information to draw our own conclusions.
Depending on which strings he wants to tug, his often three-color palette is used
to strike just the right emotion when applied to surfaces ranging from canvas and
wood to vintage metal signage. It all seems to be coming together as Eelus' work
continues to stir conversation amongst his early fans as well new ones, both of
whom anticipate his next print release and debate on which image it should contain.

Join us at Brooklynite during the un-official, last weekend of summer for an
Opening Night Party and new work from Eelus, including outside murals that are sure
leave viewers wanting more.
