ARTIST BIO

Predominantly working in glass casting, Elizar’s work is provoked by politics and human relations. In his work he explores the battle between two different positions – the cold and warm colours, the sharp and soft shape, the negative and positive. These juxtaposing contrasts are used as a narrative to expose the human temperament.
