Emmanuel Hele has been drawing as far back as anyone can remember. Since childhood he has spent countless hours drawing, building, creating, disassembling, reassembling, and altering and improving upon most everything that falls into his path. His first major influence was Walt Disney; subsequent influences include Dr Seuss and Will Vinton.
After 20 years of versatile art education Emmanuel Hele continues to strive for innovation in his work. In addition to drawing, tattooing, painting, and sculpting, he djs, writes, and alters apparel. He views all art forms as interrelated and applies lessons learned in each discipline to other disciplines as he discovers their commonalities. He further applies this ideology to the relationships that exist among the worlds of life, death, perception, emotion, memory, communication, interpersonal relationships, dreams, magic, spirituality, and travel. It is his ongoing objective to discover those commonalities and to integrate his discoveries into his life and work.
I recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
The quality of the piece we ordered was nothing short of perfect, it is perfect quality and will be the center of our dining room for years to come!
Gorgeous painting. Lots of texture. Gold foil on the luxury line adds a great effect. Highly recommended.
This is outstanding. Not only does it have the gorgeous gold foiled accents, but the texture and amount of paint on the canvas is absolutely superb. Brush strokes look amazing, colors are vivid. This is a real treat in my kitchen area. Falling in love with each order I make, but this one has really caught my attention.
This looks gorgeous in our home. Goes well in every room we tested it in.
