elmgARTS creates unique portraits by hand-cutting vinyl albums, album covers and other collectibles. Each piece is then painstakingly assembled and mounted onto canvas. The results are controversial artworks with sophisticated and witty double entendres. Each original hand-cut work contains a secret heritage that provokes a conversation with the viewer.
