'South African born and now living in the United Kingdom, Marius Els is a master in creating astonishing surrealistic collages or as he calls it “new media art”. Marius Els manufactures images which are telling a whole story and have deeper meaning.' - Tilpy Photography
I am passionate about conceptual fine art photography, expressing my thoughts and ideas in a surreal, colourful and theatrical way using digital manipulation and digital collage.
Each project consists of research, planned modelling, props and landscape photo shoots from which I gather chosen images to create the final image. The whole process can be rewarding as a lot of the topics are close to my heart and personal.
There is nothing subtle about my images with bold themes and colour that are strongly influenced by spending many years in the theatre world.
All images used in my art work are my own created in Adobe Photoshop with creative brushes from brusheezy.com
“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”
