In addition to his inclusion in Essentials at Don O’Melveny Gallery, Edem Elesh is extremely proud to announce his inclusion
in this month's issue of
The Surfer's Journal (Volume 13 #3: Summer 2004).
This is a prestigious moment in this artist's career
to be featured in this beautiful, coveted coffee table magazine.
He is very pleased that his innovative, surf inspired art is getting more recognition,
and to be carrying on the California tradition of celebrating nature
and "The Lifestyle" through his own vision.
Here's what The Surfer's Journal had to say:
Paintings by Edem Elesh
"It's all predicated on a basic truism: surfers make bitchin' stuff.
We've been running surf art portfolios for well over a decade,
displaying a wide array of styles, schools and media.
"From the representational to the abstract; from the figurative to the conceptual; from sculpture to glass... they've all had a chance to hang in our little 2-D gallery space. As a result, we receive about 85 art submissions each year. Of those, we choose perhaps three to augment the two we assign. Edem Elesh came in out of the blue, in person, and blew us away with his evocative, narrative and powerfully expressionistic work. The craft is crazy, the concepts are unique, and the overall package utterly imaginative- no cliche or shtick to be found."
Edem Elesh is currently exhibiting in a group show
at the Don O'Melveny Gallery
