NATURE is here

I'm Elkpen, a Los Angeles artist telling stories about neighborhoods and natural history. I do it in any size, location or thing that offers itself, sometimes it's a retail or corporate setting, sometimes it's a park bench, matchbook or postcard. I am looking at public space in whatever form it takes to use art to tell stories about place. My drawings, signs, and murals have been shown and installed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Canada and Mexico. 

Please get in touch. I do workshops with youth, presentations for communities and non profits, and work with corporate clients to create authentic and socially progressive images and content. You can find me on Instagram @elkpen, or email me at can see more of my ongoing ELKOLOGY project, where I use the street to talk to the community about where we live here:
