“The things I make are usually based off my past, so that I can move forward. Dinosaurs and moons live in my head.????” – ELBO
ELBO first became interested in art after a psychedelic experience in his teens. In 2005, at Tyler School of Art, he began working with soft glass in the hot shop and it wasn’t until after he graduated in 2009 that he started working with borosilicate glass, making pipes. He is inspired by the fellow artists he works with as well as Atlanta’s Trap music movement. Elbo is also the co-founder of Front St. Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
