Eli’s wonderful artistic skills were honed from his early childhood, where he spent many of his days with a Russian painter by the name of Meir Appelboim. Meir, had a huge impact on Eli whom he met through school community activities at the age of 15. Meir became a great teacher and source of inspiration.
During his subsequent 20 year career as a hi –tech entrepreneur, creativity and artistic skills have always been at the core of Eli’s work. Combining graphics, animation and visual interfaces Eli has been able to harness his artistic gift into practical business.
Eli has a great passion for the beautiful old houses found in the English countryside. Eli describes that when drawing a house the fine detail of his pen work takes him both on an emotional and a magical journey.
‘Where the history of each property is revealed with every brick and stone I immortalise. The uneven lines of the roof, walls and beams deepen the mystery. That’s why I slightly enhance these elements to bring out the warmth and personality of the houses. This gentle twist to perspective is my unique style and my artistic signature. It transforms a house into a work of art that tells a story. Its fascinating to realise that whether a person lives in an end of terrace, semi detached, detached or a manor house – they are literally living in history’… Eli Ofir.
