About the artist
Bram Ellens was born in 1978 and is a Jekyll and Hyde pur sang. After a turbulent international career as an internet entrepreneur for 10 years, in 2015 he decided to on a career shift and started working as an artist under the pseudonym Edward Bernsteyn. By means of self-study and a group of mentors, Bram developed himself into an early-stage-autonomous- artist.
He is known as an entrepreneurial artist and mainly makes theatrical sculptures and installations. Bram enjoys the big gesture, but tries to evoke a stillness in it. His works are inclusive, but not superficial. The arousal of curiosity is a common thread in all his work, it invites contact. More information about the artist on www.bramellens.com.
