Art Background: Elan’s first artistic adventure upon moving to Maui was to create a life-size whale sculpture—donated to Maui’s Ecology Park, also known as Kalama Park (located on South Kihei Road, Kihei, Hawaii), the site of Maui’s annual Whale Day celebration.
Migration to Maui: Elan introduced himself and his art work to Hawaii in 1988. He has sold more than 5,000 original paintings to collectors from around the world, making Elan one of the top selling artists in Hawaii.
