  • At first, I thought I wouldn't be very interested in this exhibit, because I prefer drawing and painting to sculptors. But when I got here, I found it very interesting. It looked very beautiful. I was very impressed, because I never would have thought of creating artwork out of common trash.

  • El is not only speaking the language of art; he is living art and understanding visual culture in its totality. His work reminds us that art is not disconnected to other aspects of our lives. It is an integral, functional and meaningful.
