ARTIST PROFILE - SKELE

Either you got it or you don’t. Either you have a concept, a vision, talent, a passion to create…or you don’t. It may take years to come out, but at the end of the day, either you got it or you don’t. Just ask Virginia based artist Skele a.k.a. Electric Skeleton. This artist is fresh to the scene and he is driven by nothing more than his love for art. Whether through daunting creatures, contorted shapes, or vibrant color schemes, Skele’s work brings more to the imagination and takes you on a journey filled with exploration. His work captures a wide array of emotions, anything from sadness to humor, and with an evolutionary mindset his work is distinctive. And to think, for him it all started with a couple of colored pencils! Skele has participated in several art shows and charity events but when it all boils down, for this up and coming artist it’s not about the riches or the fame. He loves what he does and only wants to share his talents, spread his thoughts, and be recognized. Definitely support the Electric Skeleton by taking a look below at some of his work and of course by visiting his blog.

UR NEW YORK - EYE OF THE BEHOLDER INSTALLATION

"EYE OF THE BEHOLDER" UR NEW YORK ART INSTALLATION from urnewyork on Vimeo.



"With Eye of the Beholder, we were attempting to symbolize the struggles within achieving greatness. In art everyone is watching you, what’s the next step? What is your potential greatness? What can you achieve? There is this sense of urgency, so we produce, trying to appease that constant demand. We had to ask ourselves, how do we keep our pieces from becoming stagnant, how do you continually create at a fast pace but always push the bar, always maintain that level of quality, of mastery, that’s the challenge. When it came to working with Woodward, we thought through was how will we take this moment to do something completely new for the collective. We considered balance, concepts of symmetry and understanding the tug of war between success and struggle. It breaks down pretty simply: Two artists, four panels, two each, two sides to the success" - UR NEW YORK
