|My name is Eldon Luarasi. I was born in Tirana in 1966.|
I am a self-taught artist. I began painting in oils around the age of 16. Although my work was born from surrealism, my images are not autonomous so I consider it to be more visionary in nature despite the fact that my images seem to have more of an "edge" than most work in the visionary genre.
I'm interested in time and memory, objects silently disappearing into their surroundings. The beauty of surface decay.
Trying to explore the human condition and what it means to be part of this natural world either through an innate symbolism or how we subconsciously view what surrounds us.
I'm fascinated by landscape, I attempt to bring a sense of spirit into my work, concerned with emotion, my works are mainly abstract because they try to experience the elements
