Artist Bio

Elicser Elliott leads the charge in the character-based movement in Toronto. Known for his intuitive ability to capture the essence of a subject, his work intimately frames subjects from children on the street to homages to the late great Michael Jackson and J-Dilla. The work of Elicser is highly visible in major cities across Canada, Central + South America and South Africa. Elicser is one of Toronto's favourite graffiti writers and has been voted by NOW magazine as the "Best Local Graffiti Artist" for 2014, 2013, 2012 + 2011.
