Elise Weiland is a 3D artist + media designer based out of Phoenix, AZ
I draw influence from internet culture, design culture, tattoo culture and counter culture at large. My work melds all those components and of course my own colorful perspective as well, coming together as something fun, dreamy, and perhaps a little bit dark.
I explore beauty and aesthetics through 3D characters, absract digital sculptures and environments, as well as different types of craft. What makes something beautiful or appealing? How does beauty improve upon the world and help people? And how can the decorative arts show the ways that our cultures have conversed and changed over time?
My current explorations involve psychedelia and creating surreal, fantastic environments that create a sense of my own inner world. I work qualitatively to figure out how these things all come together to create the experience of digital and physical media
