Based out of Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the story of artist duo Eleven began back in 2012 when both Liam and Noah quit their jobs and dropped out of their respective universities to pursue their dream of being among the most influential artists of their time. They spend the next 6 years experimenting with different techniques and media, to eventually discover their signature style—contemporary abstract art.
We can talk about media, techniques and whatnot for days, but we would be missing the point completely. Art isn’t about that nonsense. Art is about heart, it is about soul. We make art because we have this fire within, a voice that needs to be heard—and we just have to give into it.
It’s like being a musician; there is this music within, and it just has to come out. We make art because when we leave this world, we want our hearts to be shattered across a thousand different canvases. Like a supernova, we want to leave the world with a firework display of golden hues, love and divine beauty.
So, if you want to know what we are about, well, just skip all the nonsense and cut straight to the painfully simple truth: we are here to make fucking music. Art happens to be our instrument.
