Author Eloy: Artist Blurring the lines between Canvas & Storytelling

eloy author interview

The most interesting kinds of books come from the most unique kinds of authors. And, such books bring a new perspective for the reader. Artist and author – Eloy – is one of those unique writers who had blurred the boundaries between canvas and storytelling altogether with his book ‘The Broken Skyline’.

We recently had a chance to chat with him, diving deep into his artistic journey, his love for writing, and the things that fuel his creativity. Before we get into those interesting details, let’s get to know Eloy a little better.

About the Author: Eloy

Eloy, author of The Broken Skyline
Eloy, author of The Broken Skyline

Eloy is an artist and author from New York City, USA. Born in Ecuador, he isn’t your run-of-the-mill artist. His art is bold, raw, and totally unique, it’s a splash of Neo-expressionism on the canvas.

He’s a creative juggler, tossing words and paints into the air with impressive skill. His debut book ‘The Broken Skyline’, released in 2013, justifies his passion for writing and art equally. His ‘Flip to the End’ series and ‘So Many Galleries Expose’ are some of his most popular works.

What makes Eloy truly interesting is how he seamlessly blends these artistic worlds. He’s not just a painter who dabbles in writing, or vice versa. He uses both to create a unique voice. Think of him as an artist who whispers stories through his brushstrokes. At the point of this interview, he had published 35 art books; each having the trademark Eloy touch to it.

Further, author Eloy shared more about his childhood, his art and writing journey, inspirations, and more interesting things about himself. Let’s get straight to his interesting answers.

Tell us about your parents, kids, and family.

Been too focused on art and writing. Mom and Sis are doing well and living in Las Vegas. Would like to settle down one day.

When and where were you born and brought up?

Guayaquil, Ecuador till I was seven, then New York City. My actual home. I went to school here. All the boroughs have been lived in.

What were you like at school? Any childhood memory you would like to share?

Bored but I like learning. I still do as much as I can.

What are your educational/professional qualifications?

Bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Various work-related certificates.

What is your biggest achievement till today?

Trying to launch this brand.

Which writers inspire you?

Steinbeck, Balzac, Chaucer.

Writing is stressful at times. How do you relax your mind?

Is it?

What is your favorite motivational phrase?

Don’t rush life, live it! It’s a rush.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don’t talk to strangers.

What books do you like to read personally? What are you reading currently?

The Unknown Masterpiece by Balzac and The Human Atmosphere.

If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?

Writing fell on my lap through painting. So it’s very fresh to me. I like going at it with
confidence though. It’s a quicker art than painting in some respects but slower in others. I like composing with it. The stories are all collages.

What made you decide to sit down and actually start writing?

Being out and about with no studio to paint in.

Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?

Thank God for our modern technology. I am able to write best when during those impatient
moments of traveling underground for instance or during downtime at work.

What is the reason you write for; is it for the readers or your own self or some other thing?

I use the term I loosely’ ‘I’ for I would love to pass on my writing. For them to experience writing and any creative activity they like. You see, it started with my video art – The expose So Many Galleries on youtube. That video piece started the idea in my head about traveling throughout the cities and its galleries with our flip cameras documenting responses to questions about getting a show. And I tend to focus on them so you don’t see me.

I thought, hmm I wish that anyone at any time would go to their galleries in their neck of the woods and ask for a show and see and hear the responses. Art wants this.

So, the same can be applied to Flip to the End. Since each chapter comes out as stories. It could be the first ongoing novel or that never ends. With readers becoming Eloy and writing a part too. So to answer your question, them.

About your Book: The Broken Skyline

The Broken Skyline by Eloy is a true standout. Forget your average art book, this is a full-fledged experience. Think of it as peeking into the author’s artistic diary, but instead of random doodles, you get captivating narratives alongside his vibrant creations.

Eloy paints the heart of New York City, and then breathes life into it with his imaginative tales. We’re talking buildings transforming into characters and unlikely romances between, well, let’s just say, unexpected city fixtures. It’s a truly unique adventure.

“The Broken Skyline” isn’t just for art lovers. Eloy’s writing style is refreshingly down-to-earth, making the stories accessible to both kids and adults. It’s a playful exploration of art, a love letter to the captivating energy of New York, and a testament to Eloy’s remarkable talent for blending words and images into a captivating masterpiece.

Excited about the book? Stay tuned for a detailed review coming soon on Vowelor.

What genre is your book? What draws you to this genre?

I have two or three genres going on at the moment within the series The Broken Skyline and Flip to the End. There’s the art book for young adults genre of The Broken Skyline and then there’s this other genre with the Flip to the End series. I call it Todo writing because I use it all. And there’s also the Poetic Genre of the We Live Inside Maps twofer.

What makes ‘The Broken Skyline’ stand out in this genre?

The Broken Skyline series is the closest to my heart because it is the painting that gives that series form and shape. And line by line, I drew them out of each series of drawings and paintings portfolio for that book.

What was the inspiration behind treating inanimate objects as characters?

I am a motif hunter. Enough with household objects on a table as a still life. Why not a Garbage Bag.

What should a reader expect from ‘The Broken Skyline’?

Truth and facts.

The story brings to life the most uninteresting things like a garbage bag and gives a brilliant perspective on so many things around us. What was the hardest & the easiest thing while writing this book?

Again the painting makes it all possible. When I broke loose of merely painting a Garbage
bag as one but instead as art then it all made sense. Everything else in the series are new
motifs that art wants us to be focused on right now.

Any special experience about ‘The Broken Skyline’ that you would like to share.

Many. They are all crystallized as the books.
