Ranked by subnormal as one of the Top 10 Best New Artists of Our Time; Elliphant is none other than the lovely Ellinor Miranda Salome Olovsdotter, from Sweden.  Having worked with a number of the top DJ / producers in the world including Diplo and Skrillex, Elliphant has also done brilliant collaborations with  fellow Swede Tove Lo, and Denmark’s MØ, among others.

As one of the most brilliant songwriters of our time, with a stunningly distinct voice unlike any other, Elliphant has created hit after underground hit (and at times–mainstream hit), from the legendary “Spoon Me,” “Look Like You Love it,” “Love me Badder,” “North Star,” “Best People in the World,” “Where is Home,” “Could it Be,” “Down On Life,” “One More” with MØ, “Live till I Die,” “Music Is Life,” “Stardust,” “Ciant Hear It,” “Where is my Mama At,” “Only Getting Younger,” “Revolusion,” “Hit and Run,” “Paint the World,” and many more.

The greatness of so many of one artist’s song’s alone is phenomenal, demonstrating the brilliance of Elliphant’s songwriting ability. Combined with her musical production employed, and her dynamic, great voice that ranges from a jazzy, soulful pop, to a melodic rap or reggae beat, lends itself to making Elliphant in a class and league all her own.

With influences of punk, rock, pop, new wave, rap, trap, EDM, techno, house, breakbeat, reggae, grime, and more, Elliphant’s talent is undeniable, and her originality like few of our time; a brilliant and legendary artist of sheer greatness.

Female Sculptor Doris Caesar’s Work; Remembered

Doris Caesar; Woman, Sitting Back on Heels; 1964; Bronze;
31 1/2 x 24 x 14″

(1892–1971)

Doris Caesar was a passionate sculptor, distinguished by her radically elongated nude female forms. Her poignant renderings each embody the spirit and essence of a woman, with selective details that achieve a directness owed to Caesar’s tireless honing of her talent as a sculptor.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1892, Diane Caesar’s father encouraged her  love of the arts, She spent her teenage years dividing her time between a formal education at The Spence School, and the artistic environment of the Art Students League in Manhattan.

Putting her artistic career on hold for several years to raise her children, she began to return to her work as a sculptor in 1925, with support from her husband.  She then began her apprenticeship taught by one her greatest influences; cubist pioneer Alexander Archipenko.

In 1927, she formed a relationship with the Weyhe Gallery in New York which resulted in ongoing series of solo shows beginning in 1935. Caesar continued to pursue sculpting relentlessly, gaining momentum throughout the 1950’s with several successful solo shows. In 1959, she was featured prominently in the group show; Four American Expressionists, at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, where forty of her works were exhibited .  In addition to the Whitney where her work remains, her work is also exhibited in over thirty other museums. She continued to sculpt and exhibit her work throughout her life.

Cavalier Galleries in New York and Connecticut represents two of her esteemed works.
