Eliya Stein is a technologist and visual artist based in NYC. He was originally drawn to the act of painting while a university student as it provided a meditative escape from every day stress. He very quickly began to amass an increasing quantity of large scale, abstract paintings that began to dominate his already small living space. After having had to relocate apartments multiple times in order to expand his home studio, Eliya became attracted to digital mediums as they don't require a large amount of physical space and the colors never fade.
