Eli Sky is a Gold Coast based artist primarily painting in oils and acrylics.
In all societies and groups from ancient times to the present people have loved and valued art. The earliest artefacts found thus far date to more than 100,000 years ago: beads, figurines, decorative flint tools and other objects. Humans and our hominid ancestors produced artefacts not just for basic survival purposes but for aesthetic aims mostly lost to us now. What we do know is that humans and hominids did art. They made things that weren’t essential for physical survival but seemed necessary some how.
Art implies imagination. Over the span of human history imagination has produced a wonderful array of beautiful, compelling, inspiring, moving art forms and objects. My aim is to add to that list.
