ABOUT ME

Hello everyone,

My name is Elmar Magerram, I was born in the family of the filmmaker and cartoon artist. First inspiration from art got from parents. 

  In 2001 began studies at the Art Academy of Latvia (Restoration Departament), acquiring first experience of oil painting and academic drawing. In 2008 I am graduated the Art Academy with Master’s degree in Art History and Restoration. Since that period I made professional career in restoration of art objects. I participated in various projects of restoration of important culture objects in Latvia, Germany, Italy, UK. From 2015 I begin collaborate with antique auction houses around the globe and begin own collection of Old Master's. 

  Background in academic painting have provided a good base for my own art, firmly grounded in the realism traditions. From 2012 onwards I've turned to social themes, such as culture, religion, traditions  and humanity. Through my art, I strives to convey the diversity of people and cultures, to show things that people have in common, as human beings inhabiting one planet.
