Eltono is definitely one of our all-time favorite artists, as you could supposed, because he had two solo shows and some collective exhibitions at Delimbo.
In the new series of walls that he has recently done, we found new lines of investigation, where the artist developed some kind of new strategies for finding new results (As always does). The first wall are Placed in Cabo Verde, Africa. Second are in Cambridge, Massachussets, EEUU, and the water deposit are placed in Rennes, France.
LetÂ´s follow Eltono on instagram to get known about all his latest works.
Eltono es sin duda alguna uno de nuestros artistas favoritos, como podrÃ¡s suponer puesto que ha tenido dos exposiciones individuales y varias colectivas comisariadas por Delimbo.
En sus nuevos murales encontramos nuevas lÃneas de investigaciÃ³n en las cuales el artista genera una serie de estrategias que le permiten encontrar nuevos resultados (como siempre ha hecho).El primer mural se encuentra en Cabo Verde, Ãfrica, el segundo se encuentra en Cambridge, Massachussets, EEUU, y el depÃ³sito de agua estÃ¡ en Rennes, Francia.
And some older works to introduce you to the artist in case that you donÂ´t know that much about Eltono.
Y algunos trabajos anteriores para presentarte al artista en caso de que no sepas mucho sobre Eltono.
El artista entiende su entrada en el sistema del arte como una oportunidad para conectarlo con la calle y crear una relaciÃ³n que enriquezca a ambas partes.
En casi todos sus trabajos para galerÃas y eventos artÃsticos en espacios privados ha tenido como prioridad tender algÃºn tipo de puente entre el interior y el exterior. Su modus operandi es prÃ¡cticamente cientÃfico: Imagina un protocolo, decide unas reglas, las ejecuta y observa los resultados.
En âAlÃ©asâ el artista dejarÃ¡ una parte del proceso creativo fuera de su control, dejando asÃ de ser dueÃ±o de su obra y de controlar su evoluciÃ³n en el tiempo, en oposiciÃ³n a la pintura de estudio.
French artist Eltono (ParÃs, France, 1975) worked in Madrid for the last decade, then in Beijing for four years and now lives in southern France. FlÃ¢neur, stubborn walker and chronic observer, for years Eltono has used public space as support, studio and inspiration source. His sensitivity to what is happening around him and his knowledge of the nature of the street â its whims and its unpredictability â are his main tools when generating works.
He has worked in the street of more than ninety cities and has shown his works in many world-renowned galleries and museums, including the Tate Modern, the Somerset House, Fundacion Miro and Artium Museum, and now the artist returns to Seville to do his second solo exhibition at the Andalusian capital.Over the last twelve years, the development of Eltonoâs work in galleries has focused on finding solutions to address the problems of showing public art in private indoor spaces.
The artist understands his entry into the art world as an opportunity to connect with the street and create a relationship that enriches both sides.In almost all his work for galleries and in private spaces it has been a priority for him to build some kind of bridge between the interior and exterior. His modus operandi is virtually scientific: Imagine a protocol, decide the rules, execute them and observe the results.
In “AlÃ©as”, as an opposition to studio painting, the artist will leave some part of the creative process beyond his control, putting aside ownership of his work and the ability to monitor its progress over time.
