elkflyer.

Opening this Thursday, 21st of April, at Sydney’s prestigious nanda\hobbs gallery, issue 33 featured artist Luke Cornish aka ELK presents “Vanishing Point”, an exhibition of new works.

Drawing inspiration from travel to over twenty countries within two years, ELK takes the medium of stencil art to a new level. This body of work incorporates over 800 hand cut layers and 200 colours (per piece) into the works, taking up to two months of solitary confinement to bring them into being.

Focusing on the urban landscape, the human condition and the correlation between the two, ELK’s new body of work must be seen to be believed.

For the unlucky ones who cannot view the show in real life, the works can be viewed here, however be warned pictures do not do them the justice they deserve.
