About the Artist:
Known for creating psychedelic landscapes using the unique color palette he developed (mostly on the streets of New York), Eelco van den Berg is a Dutch painter, muralist, and illustrator. Mesmerized by hip-hop during elementary school, he ventured out, beginning his artistic career by writing graffiti.
At one point, he realized that lettering wasn’t sufficient in order to tell the complete story, so he turned to figuration. Now, his mostly hand-drawn work is characterized by its strong use of color, motifs, outlines and illustrative elements in a surrealistic pop art style.
Eelco is an internationally recognized muralist who is best known for his colorful, large scale murals mainly focusing on folk style animals and geometric shapes.
