About this work:
This ghostly image is inspired by fire. Staring into a fire is very mesmerizing and one of the only things we share with our primitive ancestors. It's the most basic yet fails to intrigue and bring up images and thoughts playing around in the flames. This painting is meant to evoke that same feeling, and has a spirit looking back at you. the spirit has a snake around his eyes and geometric patterns on his crown with a set of concentric circles. The snake represents the circle of life and the circles placed there are for higher consciousness and an open mind. All together the four elements are represented in earth : snake, air : the circles , fire : the fire, water : the eyes.

Ello (Xray Eyez) is a visual artist/designer from South Africa, living and working in Cape Town.  

Inspired by comics, animations, reality versus the made up world and invisible elements like time, her work is predominantly character-based with an unknown narrative. The viewer is left to find relevant connections to their own iconography.

Stylised and surreal elements are combined to create energetic compositions; graphic and colourful. 

Working with themes of memories, fun times, feels, real life characters and personal relevance, friends and pop culture references often appear but is not always obvious. 

She is very aware of the dynamics of organic versus geometric shapes, balance, composition, texture and chiaroscuro, and include these in her works with a quality and hand that is her own.

Ello is available for commisioned artworks, mural painting, design and illustration and as a creative director for any creative and exciting projects.
