San Francisco, CA

"I was born, raised, and went to college on the east coast in Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Since I was very young I was always making things. I was drawing constantly. It became my elective focus through high school. Although I graduated with a business degree, I began with the School of Fine Arts at University of Connecticut and was able to continue taking classes through my time there as I worked on my business degree."
Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"A number of my works are painted in very bright colors, if I had a color changing rgb flood light to the installation the colors flip and dance and it creates a ton of movement. I'm currently working on 3d mapping some of my art pieces to ad a layer of animation to them."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"One thing I have come to accept is there is no way for me to paint and not get paint all over myself -- up my arms, on my ears, across my chest. If I attempt to paint even the tiniest thing without changing into paint clothes I'm guaranteed to ruin my clothes immediately."
-- Elliott C Nathan
Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"I love paint that has been mixed to the perfect consistency to make lines that are opaque and smooth."
-- Elliott C Nathan
Q&A

What motivates and inspires you?

"I'm not sure what motivates me. I just have a very strong drive to keep making things. When I get an idea I like to create it as fast as I can-- sometimes the ideas are even good!"

Q&A

What makes a space special?

"Any space can be special, it just depends who the viewer is. When creating my own spaces I think of everything as a still-life. I try to create spaces where if you took a photo in any direction there will be nice balance and visual flow."
-- Elliott C Nathan
Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"I'm not sure what makes my art unique, I just love to create things and when I find people that appreciate the things I make it's very satisfying. I love painting with bright colors or in black and white and also enjoy collaging wood and found objects."
