About the artist

eel art

eel's art is mischievous and fun. His can-cam is a perfect example of this, turning the very tool of making art into art itself. His art doesn’t set out to express a profound message, indeed quite the opposite, he hopes his work will suggest the viewer look at everyday objects, situations and the world around them from a different perspective and raise an ironic smile. Eel says, 'I constantly hear the questions, ‘But is it art?’ or ‘What are you trying to say?’ I believe it's not a question for an artist to answer; it’s a question for the person viewing the art, not the creator. An artist may produce a piece with a distinct message, but someone may interpret that message completely differently. This for me is successful art. I don’t force the viewer towards a predetermined conclusion. I hope and encourage them to find their own meaning in my art.'
